Ya know, I can't always go on vacation like some people I know  ;) , but that hasn't stopped me from trying to bring the vacation to me when I just don't want to listen to any music, watch any TV or Movies and just want to pretend that I'm somewhere else to unwind. I like to put these up on my Big Screen TV because it fills up the room. The other thing I try to stick to are natural sounding loops. No music, no frills. Just the environment it was recorded at. There are plenty of variations out there. Some that I really like. When I can find those specific loops I will post here.

I had to post this before I lost it. Anyone ever wish they could just live the life of Yoda, minus lightsabers, Sith's and training whiney Jedi's? Well, now you can. This is awesome.

Funny that you would post these.  I was thinking about these recently, every now and then I'll ahve one on (I've only done it a few times), but a couple days ago I was thinking about a sci-fi project of mine and thought how these people on a spaceship need some kind of view, so I had the idea that of course they would have something like this that would fill up a whole wall, or be a hologram a centimeter off of the actual wall, with the environmental conditions in the room being set to match, so if you're "on the beach" there's a warm breeze, if you're "in the mountains" there's a cool chill, etc...  and I was contemplating how much of that would be considered "healthy."  Especially when you're on a confining dark spaceship in the middle of nowhere with no view.

I got into the idea of Projected Vacations from SciFi flicks over the years, but I never really had the opportunity to try them out for myself until I got my most recent HDTV. There were a handful of movies that sparked the idea, but it wasn't until I saw something recently that made me dig deeper on YouTube and started putting them on. I'm still trying to remember which movie or TV show that spurred me on.

So this thread is interesting in many ways. I get it. I think one of the top Netflix streams this winter was Ultimate Fireplace. Anything to get our minds in a different place. I think these particular videos will really become popular with the Occulus rift gadgets. Except you could interact with environment.

Regarding these videos, brought some distant memories for me. My dad use to listen to records with jungle/Hawaiian sounds and songs. I think that's evolved in my head to my enjoying a lot of trip hop. I don't know how to concert the dots for you all. It's just a primal thing I guess. Anyways I can still see the album covers with the paradise views.

It took me forever to find this freaking thread!

This one just popped up in my Youtube subscriptions.  I like when there's video, I feel like I'm there.  And I love the swell of the wave crashing in, though I wish I could see more of the beach.


Times like this I wish I had an absurdly large set in my bedroom. It would be nice to fill my vision with the beach.

Would this fall into virtual getaways?

Man, we are inching closer and closer to things that will suck us into the virtual world. Some of these things actually look pretty cool to experience.

It's a better getaway than just watching via YouTube.
