Magic Windows. Interaction with the city + final idea

Initial Idea: Using Foursquare API and Google Map API, I will create a restaurant application. It will feature the information of and directions to food venues. At first, I will display information and pictures about food venues on the corresponding buildings of restaurants, cafes, and bars using AR kit and Foursquare API. Later on, I will incorporate direction function using Google Map API. Like HotStepper example, I will put White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland on the road, and he will guide you to the restaurant you type. On the way to the restaurant, the world becomes like a tea party scene from Alice in Wonderland and displays food pictures from Foursquare on dishes on the road, like Hansel and Gretel's food path. Every time you pass by the food, it has some sound effects to make you feel like earning points. Music will play based on the type of food you are going to eat. So if you are going to a Chinese restaurant, a traditional Chinese song will play as the background music.

Final Idea: Using Google Maps API, I will make the sneaky White Rabbit guide users to one of the closest speakeasy bars in NYC, which are hidden in random places all over the city.  I will make the rabbit much smaller than the size in the video above, and he will run rather than dance, capturing his original characteristic from the movie, Alice in Wonderland. The users will also have to run to catch the running rabbit holding a ticking clock. Otherwise, the users will lose the rabbit and won't get to the bar! They will be given 10 mins to get there. If they make it, they will see the crazy cocktail (tea) party with the characters from the movie at speakeasy bar. If they don't make it, the rabbit will run away!
