We’ve been talking about it for months; the world’s first outdoor walk using iBeacon technology that you can interact with using your mobile phone. Volunteers in our Story of the Land HAT have spent the last few months researching historical documents, stories and legends, Manx language and local wildlife to build an extraordinary library of films, audio and photographs for the local community and visitors to the island to share.
Staffan Overgaard, who coordinates the team, came up with the app idea on a visit to the Hague where he saw similar technology. “The technology is innovative,” says Staffan, “but the important part is the content you can discover as you walk. You can even improve your Manx!”
Join us at our launch event on Saturday 30th April from 10am at the Sound Café where the team will be giving demonstrations and will show you how to download the app for free.
