In this presentation we describe an inclusive tourist application, The
TimeMachine, that guides a person along an outdoor trail. The TimeMachine
enhances the real environment with a virtual soundscape, and presents
information (visual and auditory) at key locations. We report the
application design and results from evaluations in different outdoor
environments. Results indicate that the Time Machine is fun, stimulating
and usable for a wide range of users. The TimeMachine is currently being
commercialized together with Skånes Hembygdsförbund and the app
developers Do-Fi, and a number of nature and museum trails are already
available in Skåne.
