Project completed in early 2015.
I was the Lead architectural designer for the project. Other members of my team that assisted on this project were Quinn Deandrus and Shannon Smith. Dan Winny was the Architect of Record.
ParallelCities.com is a Social Augmented reality site. Initially it will focus on mobile social networking (augmented reality portion) but it will have a strong online (desktop) component as well.
The Problem: It is very difficult for new comers to the city (university students, recent graduates, young professionals, immigrants) to break into the city’s social scene, and connect with other people they might find interesting; and that is so because when you are surrounded by millions of strangers, it is hard to know who among them you would be interested in, and even if you did, you would lack a medium to make the interaction take place comfortably.
The Solution: Through ParallelCities.com you join and interact with people based on shared interest topic communities and activities. It creates a virtual city to your existing city that you can populate and form more meaningful and functional communities than the ones formed currently by geographical proximity. And through its mobile social augmented reality component, you can interact with other people from your virtual communities while out in the city itself – otherwise complete strangers that in existing conditions you would completely miss.
I am currently hiring people that have knowledge of Ruby on Rails, and/or mobile app development to join the founding team, and help launch the website.
We are a young, driven and very energetic company with ambitions set very high, and we are looking for people with the same spirit to join the team and help propel it forward!
