Japan's virtual bus tour guides

Japan virtual bus tour guide

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're not just playing back a tape, though, the whole thing is actually connected to the bus's GPS navigation to sync up the virtual tour with the real current location.
