The other night I was laughing at my husband's idea that virtual reality will soon transform how people travel in the future. Today, I'm thinking maybe he's half right. Okay, maybe a bit more than that. There's no doubt virtual reality is the trendiest thing in the video game industry right now. From VR board game to thriller game, it's only a matter of time people will start to dive into other areas to bring what seems like a dream, real.
Here's the thing. A crowdfunding project just started in Japan by Avatra LLC and their goal is to create a virtual reality to experience a historical town in Tokyo, Edo.
Here's a footage of what they're working on. The finish product will have a population to depict the real town life.
If this works out I think this will be the initial drive for more city experience virtual reality. It's definitely a cheaper option to travel to Japan.
If you read Japanese, you can find out more about the project here.
This is awesome!
@TinaDang I agree, this could be a cool and inexpensive way to travel and tour but it would be nice to experience the local food and purchase merchandise.
Awesome. I can pretend to be Mugen, but without the violence.
@aanderson2789 well,some people(me) travel to try foods and buy merchandise and products from the different places they travel to..
the only problem is that you can't eat the local foods or shop at local stores
