While this article focused more on the comforts of flying, I took note more about the VR sets used on flights as part of the in-flight entertainment system. Imagine already being at the destination before you even get there!
And seats that emit lemon or coffee smells? I told you this is coming along. Someday, this will be combined with the VR elements of sight and sound.
Together with smell and the already existing sense of touch (read here), it will be no wonder that you feel the experience so real as to clock that as part of the memories of your ‘journey’.
Just a few years back, it would have seemed incredible. But we are at the edge where reality and virtual begins to blur. Crossing the Rubicon means that you can never tell real experience from virtual ones. Ponder about that.
