Options for exploration accommodate low budgets

Implications - Though consumers are becoming more cautious in their spending post-recession -- especially Millennial consumers who are known to carry debt -- the need for escapism and relaxation persists.

This moves beyond virtual reality to provide a 360-degree experience that speaks to the dire need for escape from a fast-paced society.
Workshop Question - How can your brand help consumers embrace moments of relaxation during busy day-to-day routines?
