For many people, travelling by air is not a pleasant experience. It is often cramped, crowded and uncomfortable. As a result, the use of virtual reality (VR) to escape from the pressurised environment inside the aircraft cabin is on the rise. A trend that Alaska Airlines has picked up on, as they are beginning to roll out VR to some of its passengers.Passengers on the Seattle to Boston and Boston to San Diego routes will soon be able to try out the SkyLights Allosky Cinematic VR headset, which will provide access to a range of forward-facing 3D and 360-degree films.The SkyLights VR headset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and is said to provide HD resolution for each eye, while offering films from the company’s partner studios, including 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros and EIM.
