Topophone, who’s the geek now?


I joke about my often over-the-top test boat, but check this guy out! While the topophone looks like a sensible idea for improving our natural stereo audio reception (i.e., ears) so as to get better bearings on ship horns and buoy gongs in the fog, it must have freaked the passengers a bit. The image is the logo of a small company that’s developed a topo mapping application for Smart Phones. It appears to have some interesting features, like to ability to send/plot positions via SMS, but it also has a tough competitor in Maptech’s Outdoor Navigator.
