VR Will Shape Travel
Will People Still Travel in Real Life?
Opening up Access
VR often is perceived as a tool that allows us to experience extraordinary things we cannot have in real life, such as taking a journey in a spaceship. However, 3D tours can also be used to open up access to restricted sites, such as archaeological sites or natural or cultural treasures. These sites may be restricted due to a remote location, fragility, private grounds, danger zones, or may have been demolished by a storm, an earthquake or the passages of time. VR, in this case, can serve to connect people to ancient traditions, dwellings or objects. Moreover, it can even allow people to view tiny or intricate details that cannot be seen otherwise.
