EduTechWyse Ltd is a not for profit company, set up by Lin & Peter Horne, which is responsible for the development and support of the Walkwyse outside activity Web App and its aim of raising funds for Alzheimer's Research.
The Walkwyse Web App is a great way to enjoy a virtual maze (called an aMazing trail) using your mobile phone, using GPS guidance and multimedia. The aMazing trails are located in public parks across the UK. Walking is a great way to get the exercise we all need as well as being extremely important for mental health & general wellbeing.
In 2019 Lin was diagnosed with the devastating desease of Alzheimer’s, but we were determined to keep doing our favourite activities as long as possible. The one thing she enjoys the most is walking, as does Peter, and it is great for health and wellbeing So creating an outside activity Web App for families, which anyone with a smart phone can access, seemed a great thing to do as a means of raising money for Alzheimer's Research.
LIn & Peter are also virtually "Rambling across Europe" as a means of raising money for ALzheimer's Research and will reach Rome at Xmas 2023 having taken 2 years to walk the 2,400km from Dartmouth to Rome. Follow them on their Facebook feed: here
More recently the product has been significantly enhanced to support complex trails such as the new aMazing trails, which are virtual mazes. A competitive element has been included where individuals can try to get the higheste score by completing the maze in the shortest time & distance whilst collecting virtual treasure. Great fun for all the family!
In addition to Alzheimer’s research EduTechWyse supports a large educational project at Devon Wildlife Trust. Lin & Peter are keen to support both education in the outdoors for the younger generation as well as help fund research to find cures for the devastating diseases of the brain.
Take one of our aMazing trails in a public park near to you and get to the top of the leader board by collecting as much treasure as possible in a quick time. You can take the maze as many times as you like and keep improving your score to become top of the leader board.
If there is not a maze in a suitable public park near you, please let us know and we will try and create one in time for you to take part in the competition.
The purpose of the badges is as a reward for achievable targets which can be completed relatively easily, but which can then be added to by ever more difficult targets. In the future selected badges will unlock new features on the maze which will increase the games complexity and your score.
