Alternative reality – which encompasses virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) – could become the next big computing platform. In VR, the user is immersed in an entirely artificial world. In AR, the user sees the real world overlaid with digital data.
The potential for VR/AR to elevate the tourism experience is enormous. Thanks to VR or AR, future customers can experience destinations, hotels, or even the inside of an airplane before the trip, from the comfort of their own home. By wearing VR/AR gear while visiting historical sites, tourists can also experience historical scenes or see ancient buildings in perfect condition, even if in reality the monuments do not exist anymore or are in poor condition. Thus, VR/AR is expected to transform the sector by changing how customers choose their holidays and interact with the tourism brands, and how the companies interact with them.
