The Rise of Virtual Reality (VR) Travel
Virtual reality (VR) allows us to explore new places without leaving our homes, offices, or classrooms. While this will never replace the magic of real-world travel, there’s still enormous value in being able to explore the world without needing to jump on a plane or train or take a long road trip.
Enhancing Real-World Travel with Future Internet Technologies
Future Internet technologies will also continue to improve and enhance our real-world travel experiences. Destinations like Disney parks are already working on incorporating virtual-world simulators into their venues, using projected images.
Blockchain, Web3, and the Travel Industry
Web3 technologies like blockchain will also make their way into the travel industry. There are already blockchain-based booking platforms available, and companies like TUI Group are working on integrating blockchain and smart contracts into their travel businesses. Companies are potentially looking to use blockchain-based booking to eliminate intermediary sites like Orbitz and Expedia.
