Stampions is an app from the Netherlands that is bringing stamp collecting into the modern age. The beacon-powered app challenges users to venture to popular museums, restaurants and other landmarks in search of physical stamps. Once nearby these beacon hubs, players are able to virtually collect a digital stamp to add to their phone.
To make the game even more interesting, there are special prizes for users who collect the most stamps, in the same way that a treasure or scavenger hunt works.
As well as being a novel way to kill time in the city, this is also a genius way to drive tourism to the region. Outside of the Netherlands, it's easy to imagine that similar beacon-powered games could be operated in global cities worldwide.
