Nature Trailer
location-sensitive guide and stories
Donovan, B.; Strohecker, C. (Media Lab Europe / Everyday Learning) | Wood, A.; Davenport, G. (Media Lab Europe / Story Networks)

      A sensor-equipped backpack detects weather conditions around an outdoor trail. Meanwhile a handheld device registers changing locations as you hike and plays associated narratives rendered in audio. If it's raining on you, it will be raining on the story characters! You can upload a recording of your experience to an accompanying desktop application. It shows your trail on a map and plays full video versions of the narratives.
