Text, reply, now occupy


The Occupy Wall Street movement continues to live on through virtual reconstructions on smartphone browsers. 

Behind this technology known as Augmented Reality is NYU-Poly professor Mark Skwarek, who developed the first and one of the most used virtual applications last October. Since Occupiers were evicted in December, Skwarek has been working to refine and rebuild his program called protestAR.

With this program, users can point the camera of their smartphones to physical areas in Zuccotti Park and see past pictures or video clips which occurred in these locations.
