Discover Your World
You know, it's really a shame that throughout our daily lives we may find ourselves near some really interesting or historical spots, and never know they're right in front of us.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could be alerted when we're near something of interest, receive a bit of information about it, and choose to learn more about the world around us?
This is exactly what Google is trying to help us all accomplish with a little-known app called
"Field Trip" from Google's Niantic Labs, which is an odd offshoot of the search giant, to say the least. As odd as that might be, I appreciate Google/Niantic's attempts to get people out and explore the physical world.
