Just beside the A*Star setup is Singapore's Infocomm Development Authority's pavilion where there are kiosks for visitor to experience the Singapore 2010 Odyssey
, a 3D virtual world for the Youth Olympic Games (YOG). According to an IDA representative, the online game currently has nine sports and about 200,000 registered members, with half from Singapore.
Asked if the virtual world will be maintained after the games, IDA said its intention was not only to build a virtual world for the YOG but encourage the use of virtual worlds by the local industry and schools.
