Property Tours Will Never Be the Same

There are lots of creative folks out there trying to improve the property tour experience through technology ... probably the best idea I've seen yet is the Flip video handout suggested by Lisa Trosien and Eric Brown.

No doubt, the Flip is a great idea, but there's a new technology on the horizon that trumps it, hands down -- transparent electronics.

Check out these photos of one concept based on the technology, and let your wheels start turning:

This is a concept ultra-connected device that incorporates a camera/scanner, GPS and Internet connectivity, literally putting a world of information in the palm of your hand. Self-guided tours for prospects, neighborhood guides for new residents, an instant interface between architects and contractors ... something like this has SERIOUS potential across multiple aspects of our industry.

Researchers predict we may see commercial products with the see-through technology in as little as 3-4 years. By that time, we might see the credit markets free up enough to get some new developments out of the ground.
