Sick and tired of "Are We There Yet?!?"


I swear I was born thirty years too early.

As a means of keeping the kids engaged during those long holiday drives, John Paul Bichard, Liselott Brunnberg and Oskar Juhlin at the Interactive Institute in Stockholm have developed the "Backseat Playground." Basically it's an augmented reality video game that references the real environment via GPS and a digital compass. The players (in the back seat of the car) are able to take part in various challenges based on what's going on around them outside the car.
