The noTours project presents its first audio-guide system hardware. These audio guides are built with the smartphone Acer Liquid A1 (with Android 1.6 and version 1.01 of noTours Software), the Case Peli i1015 and a special flycase for transport and protection that incorporates a battery charging system. All parts are airtight, crushproof and water resistant. (The cases have a external headphone jack and a external volume system)
The work is a 360Âº soundscape of the city of Rotterdam. Audience can explore it while seated in a spinning chair because the playback changes depending on viewÂ´s orientation. It was built on Android and the code will be included in a future version of noTours. Enrique TomÃ¡s (the programmer, and the main Android/noTours software developer), has presented this work in Rotterdam on December 2009.
