Travel seems to focus the mind ('flow' experiences) in ways more sedentary life doesn't, for example, driving, getting from Pt A to Pt B - e.g the hippie trail from Massachusetts to India.
How would one program a robot avatar in a Second Life landscape, for example, to do 'Tourism things'?
An interesting project for a course?
Pick a wonderful, virtual destination and visit it ...
... What are discrete, specific, programmable and scriptable aspects to this?
For example, how would script dancing the limbo in virtual Trinidad, or virtual head stand in India, if the script didn't already exist in Second Life, so the end user had a rich experience of this in their bodymind, as one kind of discrete, scriptable touristic behavior, ?
