Some friends of friends of mine worked on this project (they made the GPS trackers and software), with pretty good results.

Basically, they put some free chairs out in the street in various places around NYC, and when the user picked them up, they activated a GPS tracker on the bottom. When the user got home, the film crew would knock on their door and ask for an interview.

Full details and video (longer).
