Photon Particle: Geolocated Democracy

March 16, 2018

Photon Particle is a geolocated demographic polling application for phone-based XR.


Users create questions with predetermined answers and drop them anywhere they like, as small bubbles. For example, on an overhead sandwich board next to the vegan option or the entrance to the white house.

When another user points their phone at that bubble, the number of answers appears as a tooltip. If the user taps the screen, the balloon expands to fill their phone screen so they can read the question and opinions in detail. If the user has never answered the problem, they can do so, or they can choose to change their answer if they have.


Each users answer has a visible lifespan of one week unless they manually refresh their response at that location or remotely via a map. So that means each answer is dropped from the bubbles visualization after a week and the bubble gets smaller unless lots of people keep adding to it over time.

All this information is then indexed with infographics via a search page on the 2D web. So users can dig up old geolocated opinions and see the size on a timeline in graph format. They could search say vegan sandwiches and get the best vegan sandwich in the world by seeing a bubble cloud of popular opinions and answers or be more precise and locate views based on location.

There could, of course, be a trending opinions page with all the worlds biggest questions.

I hope to see great ideas come from this.



Crypto Collectables

Not all items for sale are available in the sales section. If you have a specific item you're interested in, please contact me through the sales form on the individual page for that media piece.


You Own It

The art you buy here is yours, it can be viewed and sold in many well known Crypto-collectable marketplaces where you can set a price and sell the works specific to your collection. Once purchased, I will transfer a deed of intellectual property ownership, which we both must sign. It will then be your responsibility to reregister it legally if you wish to retain rights to it.

Buy & Sell

The link above directs you to a website which facilitates the buying and selling of NFT's. There you can buy and sell high resolution JPEG images, gLTF 3D models, and WAV audio files that I have created. If you do not see it for sale, feel free to view my collection tab and make a request.


What You'll Need

In order to buy and sell NFT's you will need an Ethereum Wallet. These can range from the popular Coinbase Wallet for mobile iOS and Android to the also well known Metamask Google Chrome Extension for Desktop.
