Ex­treme Stay­ca­tions

Lonely Planet Magazine (US) - - Globetrotter -

Never mind ex­plor­ing your own coun­try: what about never leav­ing your own home? Vir­tual re­al­ity tech­nol­ogy will only be­come cheaper and more pow­er­ful. Sim­ply slip on a head­set, load the des­ti­na­tion du jour and spend the day – or a whole week­end – com­pletely im­mersed in an ex­otic lo­ca­tion. Deluxe pack­ages will sync up to smart-home tech­nol­ogy, ad­just­ing the tem­per­a­ture to match your vir­tual ex­pe­ri­ence, as well as pro­vid­ing sen­sory add-ons such as scented can­dles and meal de­liv­er­ies tai­lored to your “trip.”
