Koropla Co., Ltd., which develops and operates location information games (position games) using mobile phones and smartphones, will start offering "Colopla Stamp Tour", a stamp rally application that can be played on smartphones, from the end of the month of 8.
This application that uses Yamaha's new technology seems to be the next-generation stamp rally.
New technology "info sound" which makes data sound
Speaking of stamp rally, it is a recreation where you go to the place where you received the mount at the beginning and collect several stamps, but "Colopla Stamp Tour" released from Koropla this time is an application that can participate in various stamp rally .
It is an app that seems to be likely so far so far, but the stamp acquisition method is very unique.
Get a stamp using a technology called INFOSOUND newly developed by Yamaha.
InfoSound (INFOSOUND) is a system that modulates digital information into an acoustic signal and transmits it.
In other words, when you arrive at the stamp spot, the microphone of the smartphone with this application will hear the stamp that hears the sound signal that contains digital information that can not be heard by people flowing from the speaker!
Until now, it was possible to check in if it was a GPS signal to some extent, but by using this technology it is possible to gather people to a pinpoint in a narrower range.
In addition to this, since it is possible to attach information to music, it seems that you can use it in various ways, such as artist information can be obtained if you let the music on your smartphone! This is a great technology ^ ^
