Digital Space Traveler

Mystic Voyages Through Sound

As we maneuver our cybercraft toward a strange, bright orange planet, we hear distant voices hailing us. As we approach the surface in our shuttle we are awestruck by the brilliant skies, distant mountains, and great cityscape below. Windsong and ethereal music drift up to us as we come in for a landing. Got the gift of gab? You are going to need it here, as the natives are all very talkative. Welcome to Utopia, gateway to the worlds of Traveler.

Traveler: A Journey Through Sound

View of Digital Space Traveler in action at the Stonehenge talking circle.

Traveler is your gateway to many intriguing worlds of sound and voice. Remember Citizens Band (CB) radio, or perhaps you are a HAM radio operator? Digital Space Traveler brings that experience to the new avatar Cyberspace. In a Traveler world like Utopia or MTV Tikkiland, you choose an avatar (which looks like a giant head, or a costume party mask), fly around in three dimensions, and when you see other talking heads or hear their voices, you can join in the conversation. Because the sound is also three dimensional you can tell when someone is talking from your left or right side or when a conversation is right in front of you or in the distance. You will feel as though you have really visited with your friends in Traveler. Any way you look at it, Traveler is fantastic journey through sound.
