With GPS, Tourists Can Find the Berlin Wall
Tourists to Berlin often search for traces of the infamous Berlin Wall in vain. Now technology will help virtually rebuild the wall that the Berliners tore down.
The wall that divided East and West Berlin is probably the most important edifice of the Cold War -- and recent history. People still associate the city with the Berlin Wall and tourists to the city want to visit and see where it stood with their own eyes.
Today, however, there is little left of the former cold war concrete structure that separated the Eastern and Western halves of the city. And sometimes it is difficult to find any bits at all outside of museums.
Now a satellite based multimedia gadget can give tourists everything they ever wanted to know about the Berlin Wall -- right in the palm of their hands.
