Eat&Travel: A New Immersive Dining Experience for Restaurants
Modern society is moving towards a busier lifestyle, people have less time to enjoy themselves despite the increasing leisure options. Also, many countries around the world are facing a financial crisis, making people less wiling to travel abroad. In this paper we describe Eat&Travel, an interactive solution that ties dining and traveling together, offering restaurants the possibility to offer their customers an opportunity to enjoy a unique regional meal combined with a virtual trip in a river, where they can appreciate the landscape and learn more about the country and the culture, using an immersive CAVE environment, without the need to travel abroad.
