SoundSpot is a Location based Music Discovery Network. It allows you to discover different music on different locations based on your mood and feeling. It gives you the opportunity to Talk, Hear and Share music with your friends & family and the SoundSpot Community. Everything you share is marked with your location, so that your music will only be played at that location.
Instead of the ordinary filtering mechanism you see everywhere, SoundSpot uses gesture based filtering. For example, if the desired genre you want to hear is Rock, strum on an air guitar using your device as a pick and soon you'll start hearing rock music. We like to call it, Sound Gestures. Have any gestures of your own? record them, share them and use them later!
This project was part of the 2010 Media Innovation Lab at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya.
Together with my team members we conceptualized and identified a true market need after conducting careful research and formed a solution specifically tailored to that need. I invented and implemented the notion of Sound Gestures, a unique natural user interface which allows the user to interact with the mobile phone by moving the phone in the three dimensional space. Both server and client side were written by me.
