Strange behaviour on Tokyos streets: As “Der Spiegel” tells, there is a new mobile based gaming hype rolling out in Tokyo: Location Based Gaming.

If you want to participate in the game called Mogi you need a GPS-equipped mobile phone to roam the real streets of tokyo to find virtual items displayed on a map on your handset. When the gamer is in a diameter of 400 meters to the object its added to his list.

The clue consists in the ability to trade those items and post them on a highscore list. In our opinion the perfect combination to online and offline communication. So lets hope and see what UMTS will be bringing to european cities!
