Title: Google Maps Hacks

Description:
You’ve seen his Google Maps Hacks on international news just earlier this year, now come see the methodology behind his projects. Simon uses technology in the digital space to cleverly impact the physical space, all the while creating some playful mischief. Excited to welcome Simon to our village this year.

From Simon:
99 second hand smartphones are transported in a handcart to generate virtual traffic jam in Google Maps. Through this activity, it is possible to turn a green street red which has an impact in the physical world by navigating cars on another route to avoid being stuck in traffic. The presentation will give an insight of the hack. #googlemapshacks
