audiojack-sxswThe Bose AR House at SXSW 2019 featured the first round of interactive audio experiences that are integrated with the Bose AR Frames and Quick Connect 35 noise-cancelling headphones. Devices on the Bose AR platform have an accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer so that it can detect head movement and velocity, cardinal direction, and relative position, and Audiojack was showing an interactive audio experience where you could take different branches exploring an audio landscape by turning your head at key moments.

david-tobinI had a chance to catch up with Audiojack founder David Tobin to talk about his initial inspiration for Audiojack, his vision for how interactive audio landscapes can reinvigorate our imaginations by inviting us to become the authors of our own stories, how Audiojack is being used in educational contexts to inspire creativity, and why he things exploring the imaginal real is one of the most powerful tools we have to catalyze new ways of things, cultivate empathy, and to project out into the future to imagine the consequences of our actions.
