The Future of Travel

A Matador Original Series


In 10 years we’ve gone from scrambling around in foreign countries looking for pay phones to stopping by the Internet cafe and using Skype. From paperback language guides to real-time translation apps. From travel agents’ offices to checking websites for weather forecasts, local cams, and building itineraries in seconds. From clunky analog photo / video equipment to waterproof cams that shoot in high definition and can fit in our pockets or attach to our snowboarding helmets.

In this series we profile the ways in which all of these different technologies shape the way we travel and live. It’s brought to you in partnership between Matador and our friends at Intel, whose technology enables so much of the lifestyle in which we thrive. Join us in the conversation on Twitter with #IntelAlwaysOn.
