Virtual Tours and Virtual Worlds

March 9th, 2009 · No Comments


World Builder from Bruce Branit on Vimeo.

I noticed this short film on Future of Real Estate Marketing about a man who builds an idyllic virtual world for the woman he loves. It’s reported that it took film maker Bruce Branit over two years to create all the visual effect for this piece. Like any great work of art, the film conjures up some beautiful emotions.

I can imagine something like this as the progression of virtual tours in the coming years as Joel Burslem from Future of Real Estate Marketing pointed out.

The world’s leading real estate company, Coldwell Banker, has already created a virtual world called Second Life. Much of virtual world fantasies center around the buying or selling of virtual land and it’s no wonder Coldwell Banker is making a push into this world. After all, Coldwell Banker aims to stay in the forefront of innovative ways to buy and sell homes.

Other major companies are making a push into this virtual world… HSBC has a bank and Toyota has a dealership in Second Life. Below you’ll find the Coldwell Banker headquarters in this world complete with Porches and Beamers parked outside, a luxury yacht in the marina, a Coldwell Banker branded helicopter, and of course coffee and donuts available in the waiting room.

I tell you what, there’s lots of times I want to create a better world.
