Let Hawaii Happen
Visiting Hawaii as a tourist is amazing. But when you get to “Let Hawaii Happen” with a local as your guide, it’s a totally different experience. Start by paragliding into an island of your choice. Then, upon landing, a local will give you the most personal tour of their island — virtually-speaking.
What Works Well
This is a simple application that shows you some of the possibilities that virtual reality allows for recreation and tourism. Could this be how we visit places in the future?

Level of Interactivity
What does this mean?
The Level of Interactivity indicates how many interactive features an experience has.
For instance, a Level 1 would be a more passive experience where you will be able to look around freely, but you will not be triggering or interacting with things in the environment. A Level 2 will provide some level of interactivity but only very basically, such as being able to move between different scenes in the experience. A Level 3 will start to incorporate some more complex interactions using a remote or controller to trigger things within the scenes. A Level 4 would be a fully interactive experience but something you are still guided through. Finally, a Level 5 would be a fully interactive experience that gives you complete control of how to use it.
