A Look At The Yahoo! Trend Coaster

Posted June 25, 2015 by Jamie O'Dwyer in Features

Yahoo! Japan have developed the world’s first virtual roller coaster simulator based on internet browsing trends.

The roller coaster’s track is chosen based on graphs related to Yahoo! search results made by the player while in the simulator. This is done by searching keywords in SNS postings which then plot that keyword’s popularity for the last thirty days as the simulated track.
