Caption: Portable computer tourist guide. Male student uses Deep Map, a prototype portable computer tourist guide and translator. With this unit a personalis- ed tour can be created and viewed with a touch screen worn on the wrist. Deep Map tracks its position with a global positioning system (GPS), so information on sites of interest is given at the right time. A link to the internet provides travel and weather reports, as well as enabling bookings, of hotels for example, to be made. The system can recognize and produce speech through the microphone and headphones. This system is being developed by the European Media Lab (EML) in Heidelberg, Germany. Photographed in Heidelberg.
