Never forget a name again.
Have you ever been in the awkward situation at a social event where someone approaches you and despite your best efforts you cannot remember their name? This exact situation is what inspired the development of the mobile application, tagAR. This is a social application that provides a visual name tag into your augmented view, replacing the traditional “Hello, my name is” sticker version. It allows you to see the names of people around you tagged above their head at all times. This can help you find people in a crowded room (through the search feature) and remember someone's name before and as you approach them in educational environments, conferences, meetings, social events and where people are connecting for the first time.
The core concept behind tagAR was created to help those with dyslexia, like myself. The application provides a visual to a typically otherwise auditory introduction. Though this lead to the creation of the application, the intended audience is much wider, making it easy for those with a learning disability to receive assistance discreetly.
