  • IBM's mobile app gives matches a high tech twist

    The Wimbledon Championships kicks off next week and the tennis tournament's technology partner IBM has been showing off some of the technology that will play a part in the fortnight-long competition.

    IBM's Seer app for Android and iPhone devices is aimed at helping vistors find their way around the All England club and keeping them up to date with developments during their time at the Championships.

    Shown above is the points of interest menu of the Seer application running on a Google Nexus One device.

    Users can select which points of interest - including courts, food outlets, gates, landmarks, information points and transport - that they want to see on a map (shown overleaf) or on the augmented reality display.
