This is some cool stuff people. The Innovation Grand Prix winner at this year’s Cannes Lions, and for good reason too: what3words is a unique campaign to replace our current local addressing methods with a globally recognized system. The startup has classified every 3 metre by 3 metre square on Earth, all 57 trillion of them, with a unique combination of 3 words. They claim the new system will help aid in humanitarian delivery methods, and help travellers navigate abroad, among offering many other benefits. Check out the promotional video below to see the system in action, and have a look at their website to get.really.excited.
