Tom and Lucy, two “tourists” equipped with helmet -mounted cameras, microphones , GPS and some mobile live streaming technology, who then take instructions from users doing lot on where to go , and what doing lot to do in the city . On the website , users can register via Facebook and Twitter to give instructions to Tom and Lucy of what they want to see, from telling them to take a photo with the artists of the bar, to ask them to try the green tea and give us their opinion. Is not only a live broadcast on internet , users can give their comments about what Tom and Lucy are doing live.
