Joan Francesc Vidal i Arasa started to use noTours at the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 with the idea of developing some experiences with primary-school children (6 to 16 years old).
With this amazing project he showed the possibilities of Augmented Aurality and noTours for creating pedagogical activities with children. The documentation is quite complete, although it is written in Catalan. But it is really worth to take a look.

noTours has recently arrived Tallinn for starting the production of a new geolocalized soundwalk in the context of the exhibition Gateways (opening in May 2011 at KUMU).
“The exhibitionÂ gateways. Art and Networked Culture presents artists whose work deals with the changed conditions of an interconnected world that increasingly is transmitted through media. The artistic works presented here use various means to tackle the theme of gateways that open to realms of action and experience in our digitally interconnected culture.
“To come down to my own experience, my companion and I, for I sometimes have a companion, take pleasure in fancying ourselves knights of a new, or rather an old, order–not Equestrians or Chevaliers, not Ritters or Riders, but Walkers, a still more ancient and honorable class, I trust. The Chivalric and heroic spirit which once belonged to the Rider seems now to reside in, or perchance to have subsided into, the Walker–not the Knight, but Walker, Errant. He is a sort of fourth estate, outside of Church and State and People.”
Henry D. Thoreau, The Art of Walking, 1841.
