Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications (HotMobile)
Effortless one-touch capture of video is a unique capability of wearable devices such as Google Glass. We use this capability to create a new type of crowd-sourced system in which users receive queries relevant to their current location and opt-in references. In response, they can send back live video snippets of their surroundings. A system of result caching, geolocation and query similarity detection shields users from being overwhelmed by a flood of queries.
