About

Ghost bus. Be a "ghost" on a real bus in real time. See the passengers. Look out the window. Chat with other ghosts on the bus. Bored at work? Take a bus through Banff or Jasper BC while you work. Ride the bus virtually while your partner is actually on it!  

Goals: Get enough funding to hire a couple programmers to make it a reality. Marketing to the bus companies to allow us to do this.  

Risks and challenges

While the app itself is easy to develop, the main challenge will be allowing cameras on internet equipped buses. We have privacy concerns to overcome as well as getting the bus companies to actually allow this app. I believe this can be overcome by offering some kind of profit sharing, and as the buses are already public places I don't think we will have legal privacy challenges. We will need to hire a lawyer to work out the fine details.
