Marriott needs you to take a VR trip in its lodge rooms
You’ve got simply checked into your lodge after an all-day marathon of operating throughout airports to keep away from lacking connections; eaten a ton of crappy, overpriced airport meals since you missed a connection; are lifeless drained and simply need to fall asleep. However perhaps after your journey nap you need to see one thing new with out placing pants on and leaving your room. Nicely, for those who’ve checked into sure Marriott Lodge places you possibly can summon a Samsung Gear VR for twenty-four hours of your keep and do exactly that with a brand new pilot program. It is referred to as VRoom Service (get it?) and is a joint deal between the Korean tech juggernaut and the hotelier. The draw here’s what the pair are calling “VR Postcards” which is a flowery approach of describing video experiences whereby individuals speak about their emotions relating to journey, in response to Fortune.
The sights on show embrace the Andes, Beijing and Rwandan ice cream store along with what’s out there on Samsung’s awkwardly named Milk VR suite. Talking of the latter, for those who do not plan to spend an evening at both Marriott’s Marquis in New York or Park Lane in London, the outfit says that anybody can pull up the VR postcards by way of the platform. A lot for exclusivity. And if I am being trustworthy, it is type of shocking that Virgin did not snag one thing like this for its hello-tech lodge first. However, then once more, Marriott additionally provides in-room Netflix so the chain has some precedent for this type of tech-ahead factor.
