Gerald Ferreira on Tourism in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
According to Gerald Ferreira people might choose to live in virtual reality in the future and it will have a huge impact on the Travel Industry. Instead of visiting physical places, people may want to visit these places in Virtual Reality first.
