Tourism with a virtual reality twist

Summary

“Elsewhere, VR is being used for entertainment. Inception has worked on a project that allows people to “attend” sold-out parties. Arbel’s company has also partnered with Time Out to create VR city guides for Tel Aviv, London and New York. The idea, again, is to allow users to explore cities through someone else’s eyes. “What does it feel like to be a DJ?” says Arbel. “What does it feel to be the chef at a top restaurant? What does it feel to be an actress in a West End show? It’s not just about being in places that you couldn’t go, but also having the perspective that you couldn’t have.””
