The first digital Zagreb tourist tour was launched in the Zagreb Technology Park, which presents the city’s offer and sights to tourists as a journey through time, with the help of modern augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies.During the tour, visitors will witness the intertwining of the city’s past and present with the help of a tablet that becomes their “Time Machine” and allows tourists to peek into the past through a “digital window” and see otherwise invisible urban legends and historical events.Gemification is the future recognized by the world’s largest companies, including the Zagreb Time Travel team. As part of this application, tourists will collect points by solving historical questions and interesting puzzles while learning about the city through the game. Guides through the city in the first tour are famous women from the history of Zagreb (Manda, Mrs. Šenoa, godmother Barica, witch Barica Cindek, writer Marija Jurić Zagorka, literary character Dora Krupićeva, Black Queen, etc.). Also, they will be able to find out many interesting facts about the city and take attractive photos with historical figures and unique Zagreb backgrounds that they can share on their social networks and thus become promoters of our city. The press conference was led by the most famous godmother from Dolac – Barica and the most famous Zagreb writer – Marija Jurić Zagorka. For this occasion, they ‘came to life’, as befits the presentation of an application that revives the history of the city. “This project aims to show how creativity can be achieved in Croatia with creativity, dedicated work and effort, and that one should believe in one’s dreams and success will not be lacking.”Said the founder of Zagreb Time Travel, Kata Barišić, a successful long-term entrepreneur and owner of the PokloniMe web shop.The project won an award in 2016 as part of Startup Factory Zagreb, and was recognized and co-financed by the Zagreb Tourist Board. Also, he won the first prize in the category “Entrepreneurship” within the competition # MojZabaStart2017, as well as the public award, which made us especially happy. “After Zagreb we plan to design routes for other Croatian and world cities”Concludes Kata Barišić.In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”The Zagreb Time Travel application is available on a tablet, and the mobile application will offer discounts and recommendations for museums, hostels, restaurants and the like. The first tour is available in Croatian and English and can be booked at www.zagrebtimetravel.com at a price of 30Euros for up to 3 people.Thus, Zagreb is richer for another great tourist story.
Buckle up Brisbane! New results point to a future upswing in our property market. Photo: AAP/Marc Robertson.IF you’ve become accustomed to Brisbane’s comparatively lacklustre property performance, there’s better news ahead, according to CoreLogic head of research, Tim Lawless.Mr Lawless said indicators show new residents are beginning to come to the great South East for more than just retirement.“I think that’s changing,” he said.“It’s a recent development that we’ve started seeing a pretty decent jobs growth across the state. The latest figures I’ve seen is a 2.7 per cent rise in total jobs over the past 12 months across QLD, and that’s well and truly outpacing population growth,” Mr Lawless said.“Up until now it’s been very much a lifestyle trend of the coastal markets befitting.”CoreLogic’s August Hedonic Home Value Index revealed Brisbane’s mediocre performance across its residential market with an all-dwellings value gain of just three per cent for the past 12 months.This places Brisbane behind Sydney (13 per cent), Melbourne (12.7 per cent), Adelaide (5.2 per cent), Hobart (13.6 per cent) and Canberra (eight per cent) for value gains, according to Mr Lawless.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor1 hour ago“I would have thought by now we’d have seen some improvement just considering the yield is so strong across Brisbane, population growth is picking up a little now and jobs growth has picked up as well,” Mr Lawless said.“I still think a stronger growth profile (for Brisbane) is just around the corner,” he said.A breakup of the numbers revealed unit values continued to drag on our market.The index showed detached dwelling values rose 4.3 per cent over the year to date while attached housing values fell 3.2 per cent.Yield measures revealed a better story, with houses achieving a rental return of 4.2 per cent per annum, while units brought in 5.3 per cent.Mr Lawless said Brisbane buyers who look for property with good fundamentals should remain positive.“Those areas within ten kilometres of the GPO (general post office) are moving quite quickly with high demand, and compared to their larger city counterparts, prices are very affordable,” he said.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair or Facebook at Kieran Clair — journo
Bay of Plenty Times 20 Feb 2012Residents in the Tauranga suburb of Greerton are upset they’ll soon be sharing their “family suburb” with an adult entertainment shop. A former police youth aid officer has hit back at the critics, who have condemned him for setting up Aristocrat Adult Boutique, on Chadwick Rd near Greerton Village School.…Mr McCoy said there was nothing in Aristocrat Adult Boutique that wasn’t available for sale or viewing in local DVD shops, magazine retailers, and supermarkets. Even adult toys were available in some chemists, he claimed. However, a Tauranga father, who spoke on the condition he wasn’t named, said he didn’t think it was appropriate an adult store was set up 100m away from Greerton Village School.http://www.bayofplentytimes.co.nz/news/sex-shop-moving-near-school-shocks-locals/1277714/
