These guys have worked out how to measure the “beauty” of specific locations within cities and then designed an algorithm that automatically chooses a route between two locations in a way that maximises the beauty along it. “The goal of this work is to automatically suggest routes that are not only short but also emotionally pleasant,” they say.
This service looks at mapping and directions and seeks to find the most beautiful route. The first day of @orbital, Gary mentioned the shift in techniology’s value. He said we are no longer shooting to be the most dependable, but rather strive to provide the highest quality. This is a great example of a tried and true product that can have it’s user experience significantly improved.
