Guia Virtual - GPS que acompanha Turista a pé (?)

A Guia Neyla Bomtempo achou esta curiosidade na Internet:
Mais um concorrente para o guia de turismo?
Ou simplesmente uma coisa a mais para preocupar a função dos guias de turismo?
Trata-se de um GPS que o turista leva como uma mini note-book e va caminhando guiado pela telinha. Um "tour-guide virtual". Idéias para vender programas, com certeza, não testadas pelos usuários, e colocadas na Internet para tentar sorte e começar a vender. Tem de muitas outras cidades.... Ah, Mundo Virtual!!!
