    Sounds cool, right?
    Then it gets a little creepy...
    :wtf: Just goes to show how everything really is connected.

    I saw a video of it and it looked interesting. Even dropping my security I could not get it to work for me though.

    That is pretty awesome. And creepy. Too bad it's only in Europe...

    With the Snowden leaks and everything, it's kind of funny how prescient Watch_Dogs turned out to be. Did Ubisoft get lucky with the timing or what?

    I had to eff around with the setting (refreshing, compatability view). I can view the local stuff like CCTV and the bikes, didn't see any Twitter though (maybe cuz I don't use it).

    I like the idea behind the "all is connected", they map all public informations to a city using different, individual, services to make a global social website connectivity.
    It's creepy, but all the informations are already available, they only link them together.

    I checked Paris city, some data are nice (real time free bike availability, metro, flickr), and other are wrong or missing (traffic lights seems not correctly placed, but they don't have any interesting interaction)
    If they could list public webcams it would be great too!


    It makes me remember some futuristic movies/anime I watched with global network service : Eden of the East, Dennou Coil
    I think it could be expanded and used for real life usage (using google glasses, or smart phones apps for example).
