Jogging Over a Distance

connecting_runners.png Jogging with a partner beats jogging alone, writes ABC's News in Science, but it can be difficult to find someone nearby and who runs at roughly the same pace.

"Now prototype technology developped at the University of Melbourne, makes it possible to jog with the perfect partner, even if the person lives in another city.

The Jogging over a Distance system uses mobile phone and GPS technology as well as a custom computer program to transform a phone conversation into a 3D audio experience.

While you run, you can hear your partner's voice coming from the front, to the side, or behind, depending on how fast or slow he or she is running."
