Insights Captured Via Mobile App During Live Sporting Events

To help share some of their creative process with the world, interaction design shop Mint Digital has recently opened up a handful of prototype mobile apps to their community for insights into which should be fully developed. One that stood out to us is the Baseball Matchup app, which takes a look at how data can be overlaid onto live sports events for a better understanding of the game. As the game is in progress, the app collects data from pitcher/batter matchups, locations of hits and other stats, visualizing the data onto an augmented reality interface over the field. This allows fans (as well as tech-savvy coaches and commentators, perhaps?) to get a sense of gaps that fielders haven’t yet spotted.
