New product Ideas
This page is a good overview of my new product ideas. I have simply taken the most relevant
paragraphs from the pages in the Product section. 23rd Aug 2011
1 - A demonstration of
FaceBook Gifts Idea” 22nd June 2011
Product 2 - About the “The FaceBook Gifts Idea” 20nd July 2011
gifts via FaceBook is also meant to open the door to wider e-commerce,
and this has proved to work already, as a number of people who we have
pooled have asked the question “Can I send a gift to Myself?”
with most travel agents is they have never been to the country they are
booking, let alone have local knowledge of what to do in a specific Town
or City. By offering a FaceBook member in Cape Town, a kind of franchise
to represent FaceBook Travel, one at least knows the person they are booking
with, knows the location and accommodation well, and their local knowledge
of what to do, adds to the customer experience.
Friends of Friends?
Yes, FaceBook averages 130 friends per user, this said most of my FB Friends hover between 300 and 2000, I guess the stats take account for people who start an account but then don’t really use it much. So I’d say for people that regularly use FaceBook 750 friends is usual, by allowing your friends of friends to see your Travel Agency, you expose yourself to half a million or so clients, and if you go, friends of friends of friends your looking at 40 million odd.
How is that possible?
make an application for Blackberry and other phones that turn’s
on the GPS so it can be displayed in S-World. So it shows exactly where
your best friend is in London and they want to teleport to you in Cape
Town, South Africa and your FaceBook GPS is set to exact positioning,
they simply click on your icon and suddenly on the screen they see a very
detailed 3D simulation of Camps Bay Beach, from exactly where your standing,
you can walk around, look in all directions, your friend can see exactly
what you see, but in 3D graphics. If you walk over to a park bench, you
can sit together.
You both have Avatars, computer generated figures, like any person or animal, you have seen in any computer game, or animated TV show.
Yes you can
look just like yourself, or you can look like a Kangaroo cos your in a
bouncy mood, whatever you feel comfortable with, you can have different
avatars for your different moods, your friend can say, “I’m
glad to see your very Kangaroo today” :)
“Ok, well let me give u an example in the form of the U2 concert that was recently held at the Green Point, World Cup Stadium in Cape Town. Instead of just watching it on TV you can interact with the event, not just during the concert but before and after as well. “
OK, will U2 be keen for this?
Of course, half the S-World money goes to good causes, and Bono is a big fan of Africa, and its good PR.
Of course, carry on.
start the day off in the morning, and take a little leap and say U2 are
ok with having there FaceBook GPS’s on exact positioning. For a
start you can follow the band about all day in S-World VIRTUAL WORLD seeing
where they have breakfast and seeing where they visit. Sienna Mountain,
a little climb up Lions Head, then maybe they Cable Car up Table Mountain
and have a look around, all day you can be with them in the VIRTUAL World
and see everything they see.
Yes for Special Events and in certain locations in general, there will be S-World Camera crews available for total interaction, following U2 up Table Mountain, so you can switch views, S-World Virtual World to S-World.TV and really get the complete picture, alter the experience to cross between the real world and our virtual world.
And if the bands are in a sociable mood, they can chat with Fans, face to face.
And for the concert itself?
Well then you have the choice, you can just watch it on normal TV, or you can switch back and forwards. Go to different parts of the Stadium to where the normal TV cameras are and see the concert from that Camera, go to S-World camera teams, and chat with friends or see other people chatting with there’s, but most exciting you can get on Stage! And have your Avatar dance, or play backing guitar alongside the band. Now that’s an experience most would dream of.
So my Kangaroo Avatar can bounce all over the stage, and sing with Bono?
Yep, if you’re
still feeling bouncy.
if we go back to Virtual World and exploring Camps Bay Beach. In and around
the beachfront are about 40 shops, selling all sorts of things from Surf
Wear to African Art. Well…. in S-World when you look at the shop
from the outside, instead of saying “Kahuna Surf” it has the
sign of either one of S-World shopping partners or a new FaceBook company,
FaceBook Travel, FaceBook Realty, FaceBook Drinks, FaceBook Aerospace...
The list goes on.
Yes that’s the whole idea, you go into the shop and get greeted by a number of real peoples Avatar’s, you can start a Face to Face conversation with them in a Skype like manner.
You can choose
your agent, for instance if you went into a FaceBook Travel shop and wished
to have a beach and sun party holiday, it would make more sense to go
with an agent that, would invite them to Private Villa Parties and offer
VIP access to the best bars & night clubs. On the other hand if someone
simply wished to explore the nature reserves, mountains and spend time
in the Winelands, one should choose an agent with those interests.
