remote control tourists
Back in August we told you about a San Pellegrino robot in Italy, that could be controlled by Facebook fans across the world. More recently, Tourism Victoria got in on the fun too!
Two people were fully wired with cams, GPS, mics, etc. and sent out to wander Melbourne based on the requests of people all over the world on Facebook and Twitter, giving them a first-hand view of the city. All the content was aggregated on a website for potential tourists to view. Fun!
