Using Second Life and a Wiimote For Job Training

Users can send a text message with an origin and destination to ‘tri@dadnab.com’, and just seconds later get a text message back detailing optimal routes and travel times, and includes which buses, trains and even ferries to take. The service uses scheduled information from a coalition of 16 transit and public safety agencies

“Prior to creating the Dadnab service, it was hard for me to use public transportation on the go; I had trouble memorizing the exact times, routes and stops for my trips,” says site founder and operator Roger L. Cauvin. “Now I just send a text message and receive an itinerary on my phone.”

Dadnab also serves Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle. Maybe a Los Angeles version could just say, “sit in endless traffic.”
