For young travelers, it lies in the “logic of things”, while for older people we may arrive at a different world, a different dimension and, in any case, a different era. Light years away from it, where traveling was synonymous with adventure, and where we often at best only had a vague idea of what we were going to discover. While all that was just three or four decades ago …
Trip lived on the trip perceived, times are changing and technologies are undeniably leading us to other horizons. Not so long ago, traveling was a guide, a camera, a little shit and a few other things. So now we’re talking about metaversof AI or even off augmented reality, even for simple vacations. But what exactly is all this …
Metavers : it is a community and an interactive virtual world composed of a shared universe connected to the internet that goes beyond what we know. The term is used regularly to describe a future version of Internet 3.0 that will also integrate augmented reality andArtificial intelligence.
Augmented reality : it is the overlay of elements (sounds, images, 3D, videos, etc.) or virtual objects and realities. The whole thus makes it possible to enrich the experience that everyone lived regardless of the area, both in everyday life and on the professional or leisure level.
Artificial intelligence (IA): this covers a set of theories and techniques implemented in order to produce machines capable of simulating human intelligence. Either produce an intelligent behavior and model abstract ideas to achieve that it can come to have an understanding of its own reasoning. All applicable to all possible or conceivable areas of our lives.
Here are the ingredients for new watch with their applications both before, during and after this. Great innovations that are beginning and will increasingly revolutionize our world and ours lived.
So is it good or bad? Impossible to say yet, though as always or almost the “truth” will surely be at the end between the two.
Meanwhile, according to some studies conducted in different countries, this new world seems to interest or at least challenge; more than one in two people actually find it interesting with regard to traveling. Depending on age, of course, desire is not the same, and if almost two-thirds of young people are in favor of news, less than 30% of older people think this way.
More in detail metaverse, AI, augmented reality increasingly find an audience when it comes to visiting a museum, an exhibition or “experiencing” a concert or a show.
More generally, even taking a purely virtual tour does not seem to be intimidating. 40% of people would actually be ready to test a destination, a visit to a place or a monument, “practice” a virtual nature activity, especially obviously for the most expensive or difficult things to do in real life.
So welcome to this safari as close as possible to priceless animals in Africa, this dive under the ice in the far north that can not be improvised, the ascent of the planet’s high peaks, traditionally reserved for experienced mountaineers, the visit of these places closed to the public, this world trip that we have always dreamed of, or simply this trip that requires hours of transportation, if not a significant budget. And in any case the opportunity to interact with this new environment to the point that one can even see the ruins that we visit rebuilt, share the life of the period at this castle in the Middle Ages or more simply admire a landscape at different times of the day or year. It is more and more possible …
Just as we see our series, we will soon be able to choose our escape moments and what we will put into them. A minimum of equipment, technologies and an offer to refine a bit and the trip will be played. Everyone will organize themselves as they see fit, with savings ultimately for some, a thirst for adventure and discovery saturated for others, if not even the idea of having acted for the planet by limiting its travels … or almost because of free time and vacations will always be there.
Simply, in the opinion of many – if not desired – these would rather be regarded as moments of calm, of “letting go”, of time available to recharge your batteries or experience things with those around you without having to consider an active holiday or on the other side of the world. In short, the (re) discovery of oneself and one’s close circle in real life and the discovery of the world or new things in virtual whenever one desires.
After all, why not, even if it becomes necessary to wait a little longer before practice or even the “concept” becomes widespread. It is actually so big that one day it will be the majority instead of being one simple addition to our lives. For in this case, it would then be necessary to reconsider the economic and social weight of the tourism sector in our “real” world; him who still provides 7 to 10% of humanity with the associated income.
The fact is that these new tools and these new trends are there and that they are attracting and finding their audience more and more. Why not after all? Things have always changed and the world has evolved. And it would be utopian to think that we could make some of them disappear with a simple wave of a wand.
So let’s take it as it comes by making sure to accompany these changes to continue to master our world. After all, it will be just that new virtual world threatening what we collectively want it to be. Starting with the use that everyone decides to make of it …
