Yamanote-Line in your palm

Inspired by a rail model in Norway, Mitzuchi Tachio created a web application that showed the current status of trains in the Yamanote-Line (a underground circle line in Tokyo). It’s designed to show the current location of trains on a simplified map.

Tachio wasn’t satisfied there, though. He went off to one of the stations in the Yamanote-Line to see if his application really worked. At 11:35pm, the map shows a train is approaching. And a minute later… a train came!

You don’t usually care about the location of the trains you didn’t catch. But, it’s quite something to be able to see where that is now.

His sleepless night paid off.
