VR travel simulator for preparation or fantasy

DreTrav is a mixed reality system for simulating travel. Users experience DreTrav by entering an enclosed space that provides a 360-degree view of locations around the world. While within this ‘capsule’, the user can explore tourist attractions and landmarks through a live feed or previously recorded videos. The system also allows for digital motion experiences that can be interacted with by using hand gestures and body movements. Through this multi-media, multi-sensory experience, users can control their position, point of view, and the soundscapes that they encounter. By using the latest technology to simulate the experience of travel, DreTrav provides a new way for people to plan their trips. For those unable to travel, it offers a way to explore the world without ever leaving home.
