Going to Contra for dinner tomorrow night and I’m more excited about getting the chance to gawk at Fabian Von Hauske than to eat the food. Also, look at that lamp.

Placemeter | Making your city better

Imagine never having to guess how busy your favorite restaurant is or waiting in line at the grocery store. Placemeter is making it possible, one sensor at a time. Be smarter about your time—and help your neighbors do the same—by becoming a Meter.

Startup wants to use your old phone taped to your window to track how busy locations are.
Previously posted, without knowing the source of the imagery: video of Placemeter’s algorithmic output.
Video of Placemeter’s pitch at Websummit: “Many of you look at this video and see Times Square. But I have 20 years of computer vision experience, and I see a data mine here.”
