A New HOPE (2022): "Can You Travel Without Physically Moving? From "Online Lodging" to "Virtual Travel Package"" (Download)
Sunday, July 24, 2022: 5:00 pm (DAC 206): COVID-19 effectively stripped away our dreams of intercontinental travel, but gave us an opportunity which otherwise would never have materialized: to rethink how we should travel in the future. Taking inspiration from "Online Lodging" initially begun by deserted Japanese inns, Yoshinari flipped the COVID travel protocol to make sense out of traveling virtually; he hacked the COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Self-Test Kit and turned it into a "Virtual Travel Package." In his presentation, Yoshinari will give an in-depth guide on the essence of travel and how he turned it on its side to create the alternative travel experience.
