How about a Trip to Mars?
To many of us, it is fascinating to travel, especially to somewhere afar or somewhere we’ve never been to, like the Mission to Mars — despite the no-return clause, Mission One reported earlier this year 200,000 people from around the world applied for the trip to the Red Planet leaving everything on the earth behind.
Of course, not every one is willing to risk their life and not everyone gets the chance to do so even if they are willing to. But there is the fantasy. It does not extinguish. The curiosity. and the desire. We know that feeling when we were kids. How far away is Mars? How fast (or fastest) can I travel? How long does it take to get there? Where is the San Salvador Island? Can I sail there? Oh, and how about a trip in a horse and buggy?
Cute questions, and we don’t want to disappoint them (the kids, or anybody who has these fantasies). Hence the birth of RocketBuggyBoat, an “edutainment” (education + entertainment) mobile app that allows the users to travel in current, historical and futuristic modes of transportation, gaining a sense of travel speed vs. distance. Users can choose between Rocket, Horse and Buggy, and Boat as mode of transportation, pick different destinations and different speeds to start a trip. Multiple trips can be running simultaneously. Interesting points of interest will show up along the way with educational information of each. It’s an excellent educational tool, in terms of geography, physics and history.
Horse and Buggy
We are not Mission One, so it’s not for real, but we promise it will be fun even though it’s just virtual.
