Microsoft resurrects Flight Simulator
14 years since it’s original launch, Flight Simulator returns in real-time 4K, and we can’t be more excited.

“Wow, 😲 Are they real photos? It's hard to see the difference from the real world.” - Vignesh

“So dope. Might be worth building a gaming rig just for this game.” - Joshua

“I was already waiting for this 🔥” - Daniel

Microsoft added a new graphics engine and satellite data from Bing Maps. Now you can travel the world in amazing detail with over 37,000 airports, 2 million cities, 1.5 billion buildings, real mountains, roads, trees, rivers, animals, traffic, and more.

It doesn’t come cheap (starts at $59.99 for the standard version) but cheaper than any ticket you can get right now. However, if you’re a new Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you can try it out for $1/month.

With the current movement restrictions, the wanderlust is stronger than ever.

Luckily, there are some fun ways to see the world (safely) including domestic travel, road trips, virtual tours, and simulated travel.

Here are some cool products in the travel space:

Trift is a creator-powered tour guide with virtual experiences and travel stories in your pocket.

PhotoHound is a web app to find and share the best photo spots around the world.

City Guesser drops you in a random location to have users guess where they are at.

HearHere is a travel audio app designed to make your next road trip more interesting.

TripsGuard provides travelers (who must travel), with updated COVID-19 travel restrictions.

And later this week we’re dropping a new, unreleased app from a travel startup you’d recognize. Text (415) 481-3148 to subscribe to Product Hunt Early (limited to US and Canada right now).
HIGHLIGHT
Check out creative chat space Muze.

It’s a very different kind of messaging app. Each conversation takes place on a free-form canvas where you can zoom, draw, layer, edit, and collaborate.
