Serious Games for Virtual Concierge Application


Via: Interactive Multimedia Technology - Microsoft Surface's Hotel Concierge Application

Lynn Marentette, in one of her superb Blogs, Interactive Multimedia Technology, (Lynn is also the author of TechPsych and Technology-Supported Human-World Interaction ) reports that Sheraton hotels has partnered with Microsoft Surface to implement a Virtual Concierge application. She also challenges us to think how this could play out in classrooms, libraries, information centers, and other public spaces.

Microsoft Surface and Sheraton Hotels and Resorts are transforming the hotel lobby by letting your hands do the walking as you explore local attractions and services, and visit different Sheraton properties around the world without ever leaving the lobby.

Take a look at the following video to see how Microsoft Surface's Hotel Concierge application plays out at a Sheraton hotel
