Tech: Travel Without Moving

Who wouldn't want to spend six weeks in a Mediterranean paradise--even if it's virtual? That's how long it can take even an experienced gamer to get through the adventure PC game A Quiet Weekend in Capri ($29.99). The game is composed of more than 4,500 pictures that put players through their paces in the southern Italian retreat of Capri as they try to unravel a mystery with the help of strange tools invented by an eccentric island scientist. You can play Capri as a game, but you can also use it for virtual sightseeing. --By Jennifer L. Leo
