|Description||Ad-hoc Map-based Travel Exploration|
Triptonite is an ad-hoc, map based travel discovery platform, helping users to seek out and share travel ideas.
Triptonite was founded on the premise that most existing travel sites offer pre-packaged travel options. At Triptonite we believe there is value in offering a sense of surprise and discovery when seeking out new travel destinations.
Triptonite aims to be the very first website that folks think of when they want to explore a travel destination, before booking. Triptonite can also help travelers find new places to visit - places they may never have considered before.
People love to travel, they love to surf the web, and they love to watch TV.
Triptonite combines the interactivity of the web with the proven “passive” appeal of television delivering a captivating website for exploring the world and discovering new travel destinations. Triptonite fills the travel exploration, pre-planning niche with a discovery-based platform where people interactively select areas on a map display and watch geographic slideshows. They can tag locations viewed in the slideshow and share them with family and friends. Leveraging a captive audience, focused on a specific geographic area, Triptonite will offer high-value travel-related “photo ads” interwoven into the geographic slideshows, submitted by businesses around the world.
