Glimpse into New York City’s Past With a Dose of Déjà Vu
An iOS app uses the iPhone's compass for an immersive, nostalgic, and highly augmented experience
In 1939, Berenice Abbott‘s book Changing New York, which juxtaposed her street scenes with older ones from Eugène Atget, sparked a nascent interest in New York’s past at a time when people rushed toward the new. Her famous trope of comparing street scenes has been often imitated, but iOS app Déjà Vu takes these homages to a new level. It uses a GPS and sensors to help you match up photos and information with the spot where you’re standing, creating an augmented reality experience.
