12 Travel Innovations Learned On The Streets Of Austin

Globetrotting has never been easier. And with these amazing travel innovations at our fingertips and in our near future, you’ll want to grab your passport and give in to that wanderlust.

We asked a bunch of people at Interactive Week in Austin about their thoughts on the future of travel. Here are some standout innovations that we're excited for...

1. Smart suitcases that can tell you when you really shouldn't pack that extra pair of shoes.

2. Forget that spring break beach vacay — you might be able to take a trip to SPACE.

3. Getting lost is a problem of the past.

4. Airplanes that are way nicer than your own living room.

5. Automated itineraries that design your ideal vacation based on your interests.

6. Hotels that will cater to your every need.

7. Airports won't make you angry because they'll feel more like amusement parks.

Layovers will be MUCH more enjoyable in airports that are architecturally appealing and highly energy efficient.

8. Peer-to-peer collaboration will be the dominant way to travel.

9. You won't have to worry about forgetting your passport because of facial recognition software.

10. You might be able to travel along the California coast in just 30 minutes.

11. High-tech clothing will allow you to wear everything you'll ever need on a trip.

12. But, if travel isn't your thing, try virtual reality and magically teleport to any dreamy destination.

Remember, #everywhere isn't just a place. It can be the journey. It can be the destination. But it’s always a new state of mind. Visa. Everywhere you want to be.
