Personal tour guide
Layar is a free Augmented Reality app for iPhone and Android smart phones. Layar will use your camera to display layer specific information about your surroundings via a transparent filter.

Adopted and adapted by tourism boards all over Europe, this app is the ultimate tourist guide. Will apps like this one-day replace traditional tour guides and books as people can carry their own personal tour guide in their pocket for free?

Weddar is a socially powered weather app that gives us more personalised, localised and potentially more accurate reports than traditional services. A people-powered weather service where we can report how the weather feels, request weather reports and share them with friends. This not only gives hyper-local weather reports but also gives a more subjective view.
“Vodafone Village” will be the new innovative, eco-technological Vodafone headquarters in Milan. Solar energy panels, advanced cement that kills pollutants in the air and expansive windows to maximise natural light will all contribute to reducing Vodafone’s environmental impact.
