Location-Dependent Gaming

Long road trip with kids? Avoid complaints of "Are we there yet?" without numbing their minds with music or videos or the standard handheld video games. This New Scientist article discusses Backseat Playground, where the players interact with the game through a handheld computer and a GPS. The gameplay changes based on the car's position, and players interact with real-world objects - all from the back seat of the car!

Cynthia, This is great. I designed a similar program in 671 only taking place across I-80 in Iowa! Cool.
