The experience launched through “Palermo Città Aumentata” is landing in the suburbs of Milan.

Thanks to the Municipality of Milan and its call “Bando alle periferie” that recently funded 14 cultural projects in the areas of Giambellino-Lorenteggio, Adriano-Padova-Rizzoli, Corvetto-Chiaravalle-Porto di Mare, Niguarda-Bovisa e Qt8-Gallaratese, the “Augmented Street Art” arrived in Milan.

Designed by a consortium including the social cooperative Bepart (leader), PUSH, the cultural and creativity center BASE Milano, the publishing house Terre di mezzo Editore, the school of photography Cfp Bauer and the Foundation Arrigo e Pia Pini, the project “Milano Città Aumentata” includes very different activities: photography workshops, mapping of the urban art heritage in the 5 areas, animation design labs for the realization of augmented reality works, a paper catalog, a digital map with the opportunity to register for guided tours in the first widespread museum of augmented street art, an exhibition and much more.

Dopo il successo di Palermo onTour, l’app che permette di pianificare tour personalizzati nel capoluogo siciliano, premiata dal Google Developers Group Sicilia e allo Smau come miglior progetto legato al turismo, PUSH. presenta Open Tour.

L’applicazione per smartphone, lanciata in esclusiva a Milano, permette di creare degli itinerari su misura sfruttando gli Open Data, dati liberamente accessibili a tutti e caratterizzati da licenze di distribuzione che ne permettono la fruizione e diffusione da parte degli utenti.  È disponibile per i dispositivi Android e scaricabile gratuitamente dal Play Store.

Semplice e intuitivo il suo funzionamento: indicando il tempo a propria disposizione, il proprio punto di partenza e cosa si è interessati a visitare, l’app genererà un percorso turistico personalizzato, fornendo informazioni utili sui luoghi da visitare e – naturalmente – una mappa.  Grazie agli Open Data l‘algoritmo sviluppato da PUSH è in grado inoltre di calcolare in quanto tempo è possibile raggiungere un qualunque sito e se questo sarà aperto e visitabile al proprio arrivo.

Pensando inoltre ai turisti che spesso non dispongono di una connessione internet all’estero, l’app – disponibile anche in inglese – funziona perfettamente offline.

Open Tour però è soprattutto un progetto collaborativo: attraverso un meccanismo basato sulla condivisione dei contenuti, è pensata per essere disponibile per infinite città. Chiunque infatti attraverso il sito Open-tour.org può candidarsi per realizzare il dataset della propria città contribuendo alla crescita e alla diffusione dell’app.

 

 

Grandi novità sul fronte di trafficO2: l’app che premia gli spostamenti sostenibili è approdata anche a Milano e Roma.

Dopo aver ricompensato l’eco-sostenibilità degli studenti palermitani, l’app ha aperto la sfida anche a tutti gli utenti della Capitale e del capoluogo lombardo; non solo agli studenti, ma anche a chi si sposta quotidianamente per andare al lavoro decidendo di farlo rispettando l’ambiente: a piedi, in bici, condividendo i mezzi (auto e moto) e prendendo i mezzi pubblici.

Tre quindi le community in gioco: Palermo Connection, Roma Capoccia e Mia Bela Madunina.

Ogni community partecipa alla propria Sfida Generale e  alle sotto-sfide dedicate alla tipologia di mezzo scelto o del percorso fatto, per le quali potrà vincere dei badge, altra novità dell’app.

Gli utenti delle tre communities poi si sfidano nel Campionato Italiano, che premierà l’utente che tra tutte e tre città avrà accumulato più punti: un riconoscimento virtuale ma comunque apprezzabile!

Novità anche tra i premi: per i primi classificati delle sfide di Milano e Roma un volo a/r per Palermo, i gadget firmati trafficO2 per i secondi e terzi classificati.

Per gli utenti di Palermo premi-esperienze offerti da partner dell’associazione: dal laboratorio creativo con Edizioni Precarie al co-working di PMO, dalla lezione di cucina con lo chef Cammarata al corso di stampa 3D del FabLab, le sorprese sono tutte nuove e da scoprire.

È ancora possibile registrarsi e partecipare alla Secret Challenge, che durerà fino al 27 luglio.
Per ogni community è stato predisposto un gruppo di assistenza su Facebook:
