This sensory experience kicks off in New York today, and will move around the country to give Marriott guests and the public the chance to virtually travel to a black-sand beach in Hawaii and to the top of London’s Tower 42 skyscraper. Feel the warm sun and the ocean spray on your face as you “step” out into the Hawaiian sunset, and catch a gust of wind as you peer over the edge of one of London’s massive skyscrapers. It’s lifelike, a little disorienting, and so worth a visit. There’s no telling what technology like this will mean for the future of travel.
Pop by one of the eight Marriott locations participating in the exhibit and share your sci-fi sensory experience using the hashtag #GetTeleported.
