Whereigo LaunchesJan 03, 2008

Groundspeak launched “Whereigo” today and it looks to be another great addition to their lineup of GPS based, fun products.

From the website:

“Whereigo is a toolset for creating and playing GPS-enabled adventures in the real world. Use GPS technology to guide you to physical locations and interact with virtual objects and characters.

In late 2001, after running for over a year, Jeremy Irish and Elias Alvord came up with an interesting challenge: How could they take their favorite adventure games and bring them outdoors with GPS technology?

The idea is that you can move around in the real world using GPS and a handheld device to experience media-rich content relating to your location. The experience can be a tour guide, an adventure game or anything dreamed up by an author.
