Interactive agency NYKRIS has launched pPod - the world’s first iPod based interactive audio service.

pPod combines text, spoken word audio, and music to deliver a guide to London’s public loos – truly a convenience for iPod users on the move! Entertaining audio reviews and even accompanying sound tracks such as ‘Cosmic Winds’ and Handel’s ‘Water Music’ will help users to locate their nearest (and loveliest!) loos.

NYKRIS, a London-based BAFTA award winning company, specialise in making engaging and easy to use interactive services across the web, interactive kiosks and mobile devices.

‘We’re all aware that opportunities to deliver interactive services are developing all the time, with new types of PDA, mobile phone and MP3 player hitting the market every month. NYKRIS’ work is all about creating the best type of interactive experience no matter what sort of device we’re delivering to. Working on a service like this is an excellent opportunity for us to think about how interactive services might be developed for the iPod – a device that has so far been used primarily for portable audio’, said NYKRIS’ managing director Philip Read.

NYKRIS have also recently worked on Tate’s pioneering Pocket PC-based interactive tour, and a major touch screen system for London’s National Gallery. “We’re currently exploring other iPod-based services that could be developed, including an interactive audio guide to gigs and clubs – something that we think could be particularly attractive to iPod fans” said Philip.
