CoronaHack is an augmented vision system that integrates a speculative cyberpunk wearable design and a real-time geolocation data system. It allows users to perceive a thermal imaging environment and extract temperature information from human subjects. When one’s temperature is detected as abnormal, CoronaHack will trigger warnings and log the person’s temperature and geolocation data to a cloud service. Data is visualized in real-time on a virtual map that is accessible from any device. The system has a decentralized and open architecture, so that it contributes to citizen science and data spaces designed for the greater good.
