Microsoft Tag GoMap

GPS is great for finding your way outdoors, but what happens when you’re indoors trying to find your way through a huge building? As this video demonstrates, developers at Microsoft have come up with a prototype application called GoMap that will let you take a picture of a Microsoft Tag located on a sign in a building. In some scenarios, the program will reference your calendar to determine which room you’re supposed to be in, and will carve out a path for you to take. If Microsoft Tag catches on, this could help people find their way in shopping malls, office buildings, and more.

This could really take off if the hospitality industry picks up on this.
