Travel With Virtual Rreality Apps

In today’s modern generation technology has become the key word of traveling. It all started with the advancement in web since past couple of decades. Before this I would like to thanks mobile phones for creating revolution in its size. The potential of these new generations devices are unbelievable. We are actually wearing technology now a days. Today one of the most popular wearable is smart watches, which are going to be in main stream in near future. Another one which I would like to talk about is VR. Yes! Virtual Reality, initially it was used for gaming industry but now it is used everywhere. Let’s say marketing, education and etc.

These days even traveling companies have also started using VR. But before we see more about the use of VR in traveling let’s see what is VR. According to Wikipedia, VR replicates an environment that simulates a physical presence in places in the real world or an imagined world, allowing the user to interact in that world. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experiences, which can include sight, hearing, touch, and smell. This means devices which are powered with VR are actually powerful for simulation. Now let’s see how it is applied to traveling industry.

For me, VR is a perfect tool for marketing and it offers amazing possibilities. Only creativity is the limit. For travel industry there are major two uses of VR.

  • Inspiration
  • Presentation

Because we are able to visualize it easily, It is a ultimate powerful selling tool. This technology takes us to a virtual journey in a different way. Even it also helps the people who are related to it. Let’s say for example Airlines/Rail companies. Demonstrating the entire craft or train and allowing people to select their own seats, I think this idea is awesome for their business development. Similarly they can experience the whole passenger journey as soon as they enter the airport. Even major player in hotel industry are using VR for demonstrating the different  rooms and amenities.

Now a day’s VR is also used in tourism for attracting people by demonstration of different locations, monuments and wonders created by nature. You can see the actual place in VR in your own room and within your comfort zone. For people who are not able to visit there, VR is not less than heaven to them. Virtual kreation is one of the leading companies which works in virtual reality as well as augmented reality and the use of VR and AR in tourism is one of them. Let’s take a small tour of augmented reality and virtual reality applications in different uses.

Go ahead and start your virtual adventure!
