Who hasn’t had fun and played around with Google Maps/ Google Earth?
Part of my job is to know where things are and how to get to them. Every so often I have friends and co-workers bring in their children. Now my office is like a toy factory.
I am always hunting for new things for them to learn and have fun with.
Enter Verne: The Himalayas
This new Android App has kids explore Google Maps’ with 3D imagery along side Verne the Yeti!
You can run up the Himalayas like the Flash, skate across frozen lakes, chase yaks, discover new information, ride a jet pack, play traditional Himalayan instruments…and more!
The app uses Google Maps, the Unity Game Engine and Android systems to both teach and entertain.
All I can say is…see you in the Himalayas.
