A 2020 Holiday Is A Grounded Plane With A VR Headset

Do you miss the airport?

Do you miss the adrenaline of getting on your flight and the satisfaction of boarding? Maybe you miss the in flight meals and the cabin service?!

If so a virtual airline in Japan, First Airlines does this all without you having to leave the city. First Airlines can take you on  realistic immersion of the in flight experience and a VR style holiday. You can go to Rome, Helsinki and even visit our neighbours in New Zealand.

Considering international and domestic border closures, is this the solution to our 2020 travel blues?

To help us unpack this, Dr Erik Malcolm Champion, UNESCO Chair of Cultural Heritage and Visualisation, and Professor at Media Culture and Creative Arts, in the Humanities Faculty of Curtin University, joined Drive.
