Print [1]The Soundwalk is an “interactive, geo-locative audio tour” where a user with a headphone and smartphone app equipped with GPS can hear sounds as he or she walks around the city.

…when you move around the sounds will appear to be coming from a particular location, and you can discover other sounds as you walk around.

This innovative project was launched [1] in Hanoi, Vietnam last year. The developers plan [2] to spread the concept and campaign to other cities.

Imagine, as the number of available Soundwalks develop, instead of “what do I want to listen to today?”, you'll be wondering “where do I want to listen to today?”.
