A working prototype (Mobilot) which includes geo-location as a piece of content data was developed in a previous project. Smartphones, however, offer even more context-relevant data such as current speed or proximity to (moving) objects.

The prototype has been used in the classroom and in forest pedagogy where it was repeatedly shown that developing an even simpler user interface is an important requirement. Building on this experience, we want to develop an effective system and integrate other contexts into seekoi. Everyone should be able to use the system, not just developers.
