Nobel Prize Laureates Danced the Night Away in Virtual Night Club

By Streaming Sounds and Video From Famous Virtual Club NEVERDIE Into a Real Night Club Setting, Entropia Universe Melded the Virtual World and the Real World

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 20, 2006 -- Nobel Prize Festivities -- Immediately after the prize giving ceremonies and banquet at Stockholm Town Hall, the Nobel Laureates, their guests and other honorees were taken to the Stockholm School of Economics for the Nobel Night Cap Party where Entropia Universe welcomed them to a combined virtual and real night club, a world first in entertainment.

Live sounds and video were projected from the famous Club NEVERDIE into the physical night club, creating the illusion that the Nobel Laureates and the avatars were dancing and partying together. The night club was built in the main hall of the Stockholm School of Economics and immediately became the center of the party. It was a stunning display of melding the virtual world into the real world. Jon "NEVERDIE" Jacobs, at Club NEVERDIE, and famous Swedish radio DJ Anders Berglund, in place in Stockholm, took turns spinning records for the happy guests.
