The Youth Olympic Games is getting its own alternate reality, with a little help from technology and the Internet.

ST Electronics will helm the “Virtual World for Education and Youth Engagement” Project, creating a virtual world that allows the world’s youth to come together and learn more about sport, culture, and the Olympic values.

The virtual world would also serve as an online portal for international interaction through games and interactive features.

It all sounds very promising, but “Virtual World for Education and Youth Engagement” had better not remain its official name…
