If you want to kill some time today (and we know you do), then drive the streets of Paris by going to this site for Nokia’s Multimedia Car Kit CK-20W, The Passenger. It
puts you in the driver’s seat as you take a beautiful woman around
to carry out some nefarious plot or other. Instead of re-creating the city using computer animation, they shot actual footage on the Ile St. Louis. While you’re driving, you can fool
around with Nokia’s car kit by using its GPS features and changing the music. The site is fairly cool, and I spent a ridiculous amount of time on it this morning,
though, alas, my attempts to actually crash the car—even though I was making
90-degree turns without using the brakes—failed. Well, at least the Geico gecko
is smiling about that somewhere. Via Net.
