Description

This smartphone app is connected to one of the largest databases of historical markers’ text and their GPS coordinates in the United States.  It uses GPS to evaluate existing locations and compares it to a dataset to see if the user is within range to view the marker. If so, the smartphone “reads” the text aloud as it activates.

The system is hands-free and requires no physical interaction. Users can also upload their own 200-character count text  — history, advertising, or tidbits of information about a place, which will then activate at the proper location for other app users.

App Finalist for 2010 European Satellite Navigation Competition (ESNC).
