Some call it The Mother Route 66, others America's Main Street. Bobby Troup encouraged a footloose, post-war America to "Getyour kicks on Route 66". But until now no one has ever created a way for people to enjoy this great highway without ever driving a mile on it. I'm talking about a Virtual Tour ofRoute 66. In 2010 three graduate students, Ann King, Tina Lai and Marc Meyer from California State University East Bay campus created "The Mother Road Multimedia Experience". The project was described in the Tunnel Vision column of the Winter 2010 edition of The American Road Magazine.

My American Road TripTalk guest is Ann King, one of those bright young students, who combined the best of cutting edge technology with a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle to provide a virtual tour of a portion of Route 66. You won't want to miss a moment of our conversation. Watch this Virtual Route 66 Video.
