Travel booking site’s study shows that hologram and wearable technology will become the future of travel.

Online travel search engine Skyscanner conducted a research called The Future of Travel with 56 researchers, futurists, and editors. They based their predictions on existing and upcoming technologies.

According to The Future Laboratory co-founder Martin Raymond, 10 years from now, the watch or the contact lenses you are wearing might be triggered by your vital signs and decide to tell you it’s time to get a vacation providing you with the travel destination and itinerary that best fits your preference and your budget.

Skyscanner CEO Gareth Williams said in the future, vacations would be recorded by 3-D immense experience. This prediction is loosely based on technologies offered by virtual reality headset for 3D gaming manufacturer Oculus Rift. This prediction is also inspired by 3RD Planet Media Company and its CGI tool that can let people experience various city streets through virtual reality. In the future people could experience different places without even going there, but still get a realistic experience. Disney has a technology called REVEL that can give feedback from virtual 3-D objects. Meanwhile, Japanese company Tachi Lab is under the process of creating a technology that can transform audio into texture.

You’ve probably seen this in movies, but according to the study, by 2024 a hologram will replace travel guides, travel agents, and concierges in accommodating your travel needs. This hologram might come from wearable technologies, like your shirt, your watch, your contact lenses, or from your own personal R2D2. This travel hologram will know all your travel preferences by checking your online browsing history, your reviews and likes in social media platforms, and through your other digital interactions. According to futurist and author Daniel Burrus, this hologram will be an artificial intelligence technology connected to the web. This holographic AI can actually sense if you really are having fun, this sensing technology is already being developed by tech company Affectiva.

Revolutionizing wearable technology

Photography could reach impossible heights with the current technologies being developed today. One day, people can capture all their experience by taking pictures of what they see using the wearable technology already in their eyes. This is evident with Google Glass. Samsung Galaxy Gear and Sony Smartwatch could be the advent of wearable technology where watches and shirts could offer the information and connectivity people need.
