Description

Wikitude is a handy application for planning a trip or to find out about landmarks in your surroundings; 350,000 world-wide points of interest may be searched by GPS or by address. The truly compelling feature is the cam view, users may hold the phone’s camera against a spectacular mountain range and see the names and heights displayed as overlay mapped with the mountains in the camera. Users may look out of an airplane window to see what is down there. Users may walk through a city like Seville, Spain, holding the phone’s camera against a building and Wikitude tells what it is.

  • Using Maps API, Wikitude is able to search 350,000 world-wide points of interests based on your current GPS location or by address, display the results in list and map view and read detailed articles in a PDA friendly way.
  • Next to displaying results on a map, Wikitude is able to display points of interests as overlay in your phone’s camera view.
  • There is a special “Scan Mode” within the camera view. In this mode you see name and detail information of the point of interest that is closest to the center of the cam screen. This way you can scan the horizon to get more information about a particular point of interest (I.e. a mountain, a landmark or a special building).

  • Kick-start your Philips Hue obsession with up to 40 percent off (UK)

    You name it. These smart bulbs can do almost everything.

    Philips Hue lighting allows you to select between millions of colors and shades of light to add some mood to the home. These bulbs can be controlled by connected smartphones or tablets and can even be synchronized to change with entertainment media like games and movies. With 40 percent off Hue lighting in the UK, house lighting will never be boring again.

    For example, you can pick up three Hue bulbs and the Philips Bridge for £149. The best part is how the bulbs do not require any special installation. Simply screw them in. Philips also bundles its bridge device, which is used to act as a link between all of the Hue lighting installed throughout the home.

    Plug it in, connect everything together and you’re good to go. Individual bulbs and lighting strips can be purchased at a later date should you be happy with the setup.
