OSSINING, N.Y. -- A new mobile app and website that will transform how residents and visitors alike experience the many events and other activities the Village of Ossining has to offer.
"Ossining in 3D" was created by Ossining native Eric Feinstein, who was looking for a way to create mobile audio tours. He is using the 1.5-mile walking art route in honor of the village's Bicentennial as a test market for his app.
"I have been working on a service related to site-specific, mobile audio tours for a while and was extremely fortunate to learn that my hometown of Ossining was planning an outdoor sculpture exhibit," Feinstein said in a statement. "I believe that the audio commentary provides a deeper level of engagement with the pieces on the tour, whether they are sculptures, buildings, monuments anything that someone might come across as they walk around."
Another Ossining resident, Dr. Nitin Nayak, recently launched a new event-centric social networking platform featuring a number of events from the Village of Ossining's bicentennial calendar.
myPEPR (my Personal Event Planning Robot) not only makes it easier to find local events that fit your interests, it also identifies local friends who share those interests as well as mutually convenient times for you to attend events together. Users can have fun organizing each event, commenting and hearing their friends' comments, posting photos, and creating a diary of social activities to share with friends and family.
"Ossining and the surrounding area offers a lot of interesting activities, though many are not aware of all that's going on," Nayak said in a statement. "Hopefully, myPEPR will change that."
