The Onion Routing AR Walking TOR was a participatory interpretation of the inner workings of onion routing and the TOR browser using augmented reality and location-based virtual markers. First presented at the Radical Networks Conference on October 20th - 21st, 2017, Ribeaux and Hanson took participants to find on a series of geolocated 3D models representing global servers as waypoints around the Radical Networks venue. This participatory activity using 3D models formed a simulation of onion routing, where each participant represented a programmatically routed data packet. Each route was randomly generated with each stop slowly decrypting a hidden message.
This AR Walking TOR was also shown as an installation and walking tour at Ó̵̞͠O̸̮͠ͅP̷͔̊͝S̵̡̱̑.̵̻̯̏͘.̶̜́͛.̷͔̑ : Obfuscating Ownership: Privacy & Sousveillance Symposium at the University of Hertfordshire on December 10-11, 2018.
