What it is: 7Scenes is a new GPS platform, which you can use for games and tours! It sounds simple, and it is. An example. The Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam wants to give his costumers the opportunity to do a ‘search’ within the city, in which they show them all the historical beauties in the centre. They simply have to create a ‘scene’ on the website of 7Scenes, and the players can do the search on their mobile pones, by using their GPS.
Why it’s cool: It’s cool because 7Scenes offers a complete new type of gaming, consider it as ‘real life gaming’. The players are playing with each other, using the GPS systems on their mobile phones. Organisations are able to use the location-based content display, to increase the costumer relations.
