Americas: To Hawaii and London, via Teleporter in Cambridge, Mass.

In partnership with:

by Sue Pelletier

Last week I had the opportunity to take a short trip into Cambridge, Mass., to check out the Marriott's new Teleporter at the Boston Marriott Cambridge by MIT. It was set up in the lobby just inside the front doors, a phone booth-sized apparatus that you step into, strap on an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and wireless headphones, and head to Hawaii's Wai'anapanapa Black Sand Beach in Maui and London. Having seen the guy before me flail around looking for something to grab onto (and signing a waiver that I don't have epilepsy or other conditions that could be set off from the experience), I hopped in, strapped everything on, and took off.

Here I am in (virtual) Hawaii and on top of Tower 42 in London (that's the one that you want to be holding onto something when you land, since the roof slants and you feel like you're about to get pitched off!).
