摘要

BeaconPass is a smartphone/tablet application inspired by shared problems among travelers. Following our previews research; lack of internet access, GPS inaccuracy, battery life and insufficient site-specific information, reflect on travelers getting lost and missing on their touring expectations. Thus it was decided that the application’s goal is to narrow the gap between previously planned activities and the exploration of a city. Beacon technology was selected as the means, from which the application would develop, to ease the exploration of a city. Given the potential that beacon technology holds for showcasing a wide offer of visiting alternatives, on a site-specific basis, the application has been packaged into a game that seeks to encourage the traveler to meet unplanned locations. Graphically, the game uses a “pirate’s journey” metaphor that allows the user to level up while engaging in an open exploration of the city.
