Have you ever wondered what is on the other side of the Globe? This Kickstarter app will let you discover it.
From time to time we all wonder what is on the other side of the world exactly beneath our feet. It is quite hard to image as we are used to “Mercator-flat” image of the world. Couple of Geeks from London decided to develop an app called the Globe that would make in much easier to explore it… and they are looking for your support on Kickstarter.
The app is supposed to be free, open, simple as possible and it won’t require any logins. Actually there is working demo website available here. In fact there are a couple of apps that do exactly the same thing but how can you not support a team of such a cool GeoGeeks?
Team Globe is planning to add couple of cool features that will make the app unique. The coolest one will let you record your trip and show it on the other side of the world. Crazy but extremely cool!
We hope that Richard, Lewis and Peter will get their project funded. You’ve got our modest but sincere £1.
