Augmented Reality as an emerging innovation in the Travel Industry

Guidance, Information, Tips, and Warnings! Not only these but also a one-of-a-kind travel inspiration. The next time you are all set to go on a trip, just remember that beyond the mundane travel apps, Virtual Reality (VR)/ Augmented Reality (AR) applications can not only power better journeys, but also enable exploring, experiencing, and enjoying other destinations and cultures like never before.

Here are some ways where Augmented/Virtual/Mixed Reality technology changes how one finds and experiences tourist attractions, culture, and entertainment.

Interactive, real-time information and guidance

AR apps with digital overlays offer additional information in a historical or cultural context. They can also help to find quick transport routes, amenities, and reviews of nearby hotels with just a click.

Virtual Reality for the “try before you experience” option

True-to-life experience is gained with a virtual reality app offering 360-degree videos of tourist destinations. This can convince first-time travelers to plan their vacations suited to their budget and style.

Renewing interest in Cultural Heritage

Cultural heritage sites and monuments are of great interest to the contemporary tourist. However, there are many historic sites whose main structures have been damaged or destroyed. By using digital reconstruction methods driven by Mixed Reality technology, they can now be viewed to the fullest extent and their architectural grandeur fully realized.
