Mediascapes are mobile, location–based experiences that incorporate digital media with the sights, sounds, and textures of the world around you. A mediascape blends digital images, video, audio and interactions with the physical landscape.
“mscape” is the code name for a new technology from HP Labs. mscape software and the mscape player let you create and enjoy mediascapes. And mscapers.com is the place for sharing and downloading mediascapes on your GPS–enabled devices.
You can play mediascapes on a GPS–enabled Windows Mobile device. Games, guided walks and tours, and destinations are among the mediascapes created to date. You can download a mediascape onto a portable device, and see how the landscape comes alive as you move through the environment.
A simple and cool idea…
