From Chennai to China...

Everytime I travel to my home town, or some where else, say any long journey that last more than 3-10 hours, I find it boring to stare at the same road-side trees and buildings. Music gadgets help me relax for 2-3 hours but not more than that. My ears start to pain. TV's are the most traditional stuff bus operators use to help kill the idleness of the passengers.
I had an idea of a Virtual Ride. It is like simulating the inside area of the bus in such a way that I feel like travelling in venice in a boat or a walk on the great wall of china or any great place I haven't been to, before. Mother Earth has so many wonderful places to which everyone cannot afford to go.

That rejoicement resulting from that experience may be virtually created. Virtual Reality is not a new thing. The bus will not have windows on it's side but full of digital invisible screen. Once the place is dark enough, we will not even realize that we were in a bus. Think about movie theatres. There is so much of seats and people around but all you keen to, is that one screen which is in front of you. I have no idea if something like this is possible or not, but I wish it could be. If something like this can happen, I will be boarding that bus with full of excitement and expectations from now on...
Now, eventhough the idea looks good, businessmen only think about money. Monetization becomes tough for ideas like this. The bus journey will eventually become unaffordable. Old ladies will say, "I would rather go to venice directly than afford a ticket inside this bus ;)".
