People from around the globe browsing the internet for a peep into Kerala’s pristine destinations may not need a mouse, track pad or keyboard henceforth to navigate through the pages – mere gestures would be enough.
In yet another first, the Kerala Tourism has launched a new website (http://when-it-rains.com) with gesture-controlled features to help its users. The website, the first by a state tourism board in the country, introduces a user to the rain-washed plains, misty hills and the majestic backwaters of Kerala through a gesture-based interface.
Launched as a part of the monsoon campaign by Kerala Tourism, the new website is one of the few tourism websites in the world to use the gesture-controlled technology. Visually stunning images of the monsoon shot by Facebook fans of Kerala Tourism are used in the new website, developed by Stark Communications, the official marketing and communications agency of the Kerala Tourism Department.
