Tagging Tokyo’s streets

O governo japons vai colocar tag eletrnicas em objetos urbanos para ajudar as pessoas a se localizarem em Tquio, onde as ruas e avenidas no tm nomes…Muito interessante saber como funciona o correio l…Turistas e habitantes se perdem constantemente…Esse fenmeno reflete a nova configurao das cidades contemporneas como “mquinas de comunicar”, onde objetos enviam e processam informaes a partir de diversos dispositivos e redes produzindo localizao e mapeamento por tecnologias de comunicao. Ver sobre o assunto meu artigo sobre mdias locativas .

Abaixo trecho da matria Tagging Tokyo’s streets with no name> do Guardian Unlimited Technology.

“Japan’s government sees enormous benefits from making every object readable this way. Improved guidance for the blind is one, painless interactive guidance for the tourists Japan desperately yearns for is another, and even salarymen and befuddled gaijin reporters trying to get around hostile cities will benefit from the scheme. Working with Sakamura’s outfit and Japan’s top technology companies such as Hitachi, the country’s Information Ministry has just spent 1bn (4.2m) on a month-long field trial that covered several blocks of the famousGinza shopping district.

During the trial last month, PDA-style communicators were handed out to reporters and tourists, who were then free to wander around picking up information on their PDAs as they went.

Anyone emerging with a communicator at the Ginza metro station, for example, had a 3D, real-time image of the landscape above them beamed to their PDA, making it a cinch to see which exit you might want if you were headed, say, for the Mitsukoshi department store. Head towards the store itself and RFID tags in the building sense your presence then zap to your PDA a woman’s image welcoming you to the store.

  1. "(Nunca existe um endereo como Rua tal, nmero x. sempre algo como 2-7-2 Nishi-Shinjuku. Os nomes so o do distrito e do bairro, e os nmeros da frente representam respectivamente: a subregio do bairro (chome), o quarteiro dentro do chome e, finalmente, o nmero do prdio. Mas os nmeros das casas no so dados por ordem geogrfica, e sim por ordem de antiguidade (!). De qualquer forma, ter o endereo de algum lugar praticamente intil e nenhum taxista ou transeunte ir saber onde voc quer ir, ao menos que voc tenha o mapa, referncias e algum senso de orientao.)"
