Fresh Kills. First it was an estuary. Then it was a landfill. Now it’s a park with an active blog and a brand new app.
The experience, which is available to users of iPhone 4, iPad, Android and Blackberry devices, was constructed using theLayar browser, which makes use of a phone’s camera, GPS, compass and accelerometer to enhance what is seen with a layer of digital information. Users are able to view the landscape through their phone, and Freshkills Park+provides relevant information, audio, video, links and downloads in real time.
Pretty snazzy. Can’t wait to try it out!
