ABOUT

Post-Internet Era, a long-form documentary narrative, that shows a wide range of stories related to innovative technologies seen as the key point for a new global cycle. Big data, artificial intelligence, cybernetics and behavioral economics are shaping our society—for better or worse. If such widespread technologies are not compatible with our society's core values, sooner or later they will cause extensive damage to the democratic process, worldwide. We are a group of reporters, researchers, data analysts, visual artists and writers, committed to show how fundamental new technologies inherently are for any social, economical and environmental change.

TECHNOLOGY

Post-Internet Era works with an instant Augmented Reality app, its code is open source so everyone can use and improve it.

The project is a first experiment of a cross-media reportage narrative based over AR. The involved technology is based on open-source projects mainly on AR.js, Three.js and A-Frame.

The technology is all web based that means that is available on all the devices that can access the internet without install an additional app, hence a so called instant app, working absolutely also on mobile devices. The code itself is hosted on Github and is available to be browsed and forked https://github.com/puria/pie
