Now it’s good, not like it used to be. Everything is easy, including traveling, even though you don’t have enough money. All you need is free Wi-Fi to travel the world. In this time of pandemic, it may be very difficult to travel around the world. Or maybe you miss the places you’ve been. Don’t be sad, you can still treat the longing of traveling around the world.
Ok let’s start. On YouTube, there is a lot of virtual walking content that you can enjoy. The concept is simple; a vlogger walks in a tourist spot while recording the surrounding scenery. They record with a professional camera or with a Go-Pro. The result is equivalent to 4K videographer. When you watch the content, you will feel as if you are the one walking there. You are free to choose content with narration, text or no information at all.
There are several ways to enjoy this content,
- Watching on a wide screen television that has a high resolution.
- You can use VR glasses and watch it using gadgets.
- You can use VR connected to a play station device.
- You can combine a VR device with a treadmill machine, because there is some content that has the label ‘walking tour treadmill’ for content that can be enjoyed on a treadmill.
