    Default What3words - 3 words for every 3m square of land

    Prompted by the second video below being used in a TV advert tonight.
    Also went to the website and typed in my postcode. Interesting piece of kit...



    Imagine having only 5 seconds of battery life left on your phone and you're in a remote area having just had an accident - and you're able to give 3 words to give your exact location so emergency services can find you.

    Well it's now possible and a very useful piece of technology...

    What3words.com and their app has given every 3m square a unique combination of three words. People are using the free app to help 999 know exactly where to find incidents.

    When Miller and his Nanny got hit by a tractor in their car, Miller told 999 exactly where they needed help.



    When he got in trouble on a remote loch in Scotland, Jason used what3words to tell mountain rescue where to find him.

    Useful? Interesting? Essential? Life saver? What do you think?
    Can you think of any other uses or applications for tech like this?
