Virtual Tour Guides – Synthravels
13, March, 2007 1 Comment
I just read about a company, Synthravels, (the first in the world!) that is providing a guide service for online worlds. Hm..first you need real monehy to buy virtual currency in Second Life, now this…What will they think of next?
I guess it makes sense. I mean when you visit a new place, you often read a guide book, or explore an online guide on the place, so why not do the same for a new virtual world!
Synthravels is the first agency to offer a virtual guide for online worlds such as “World of Warcraft” and “The Sims Online”.
The customer first registers with the company, picks an online destination, and is then sent an itinerary. The customer has to download a software to tour the virtual worlds! Then, it’s on to the tour with the guide showing all the hotspots of the online world.
Not bad for parents and other adults who want to know what these games are like and what kind of online worlds their kids are inhabitating most of the time.
Now, if only I can get some time off for some virtual travel!
