Virtual Reality Postcards
Now you can stay in your hotel room and travel!
Marriot Hotel guests can place an order via room service or Marriott’s mobile request app. They will then be delivered a Samsung Gear VR headset to their room, on loan for 24 hours. The guest chooses between three specially created virtual reality postcards — a trip to the Andean Mountains in Chile, an exploration of Bejing, or a visit to a Rwandan ice cream shop. These are adventures by three travellers that were filmed using 360 degree 3D filming techniques by Framestore’s Virtual Reality Studio — users simply put on their headsets and immerse themselves in the traveler’s adventure. Is this Marriot making us virtually travel from the luxury of our hotel room? Check out their videos asking people of their favourite travel photos.
