That looks really cool!
Yes, I see the potential for it in planning and “scouting out” locations to visit. Especially since it would be on wheels and could give a good estimation of where wheelchair users could go – ie no stairs etc. Though, a wheelchair likely could do a bit more (ie gravel etc).
On a personal note, I am always a bit cautious of VR/AR/Remote presence as they can be an easy out for locations employing them – ie “instead of making our facility accessible, we can just give VR goggles to the people in wheelchairs.” Travel is much more than images, it is sound, smell, hot/cold/humidity, etc.
But as a planning tool, or something to aide those who absolutely cannot travel, this looks really interesting!
