Japan' virtual bus tour guides

Japan´s virtual bus tour guides - Engadget - www.engadget.com: "The Japanese figured out a long time ago that real people cost real money, so continuing in their fine tradition of replacing everyone possible with some sort of machine, robot, or automated device, a tour bus service in Hiroshima is getting rid of their tour guides and replacing them with virtual ones instead.


They'e not just playing back a tape, though, the whole thing is actually connected to the bus' GPS navigation to sync up the virtual tour with the real current location."
The same thing could work well here as well. When are'we going to see the first virtual travel expo in Helsinki?
