Technology has improved a lot over the past 15 years, and lots of new gadgets are coming in the market these days. One of the latest and the coolest technologies that has emerged in the market is virtual reality. This fast growing technology is attracting lots of audiences, and now more and more gadgets are using it to increase their sales.
Initially, VR was used to improve gaming experience and to enhance audiences with better movie encounters. But, with the rise in its popularity and craze, big companies like Sony, and Facebook started investing in it. And now a lot of experimentation and exploration has begun in this field.
So naturally we expect VR to be a big part of our future. With so much investment of time, workforce and money in this technology, expectations has increased and here are the seven ways in which VR can affect us and can change our future:
Virtual reality gained its popularity because of gaming. Imagine your a counter strike game in 3D. VR has already started conquering this field, and many more companies have begun building new games according to the VR technology. Not only this, gaming companies are working on the idea of VR gambling to enhance the user experience.
Till now, 3D movies were rocking the theaters. You can experience 3D for now. But that’s not the real one. Real 3D will be based on VR technology. In real 3D, you can see yourself as a part of the movie. You can feel the film from your choice of angle, not from the camera’s choice. You can feel colors and can get a better view. Developments have already started, and one cinema hall of this type has launched in Amsterdam.
Virtual reality can make you travel the world without leaving your home. Yes, VR technology can get you to travel from your house to a whole new place. You can go shopping, traveling, or socializing without going out of your house. VR technology is based on ”being there without actually being there.” So it is expected that we can see the waves of the ocean in our home, experience the sun and beach in Miami, and much more. With this technology, places that are far off will become your next door neighbors.
Work more comfortably
Working from home is always more comfortable and productive. With VR technologies, we are expecting the development of virtual offices. With this technology, one can work from anywhere. Connected digital printers, uninterrupted tasks, etc. are the additional features that can be expected with this concept.
Better view of products and services
Virtual reality can provide a better real-time experience of services and products that we may plan to purchase. Right now, we have to judge anything from its 2D picture for example a hotel room, or any traveling destination. But with the introduction of 3D virtual reality, you can view and feel the place before the actual arrival. You can judge the feel of the place before actually going there.
With the help of virtual reality, the quality of learning will improve a lot. Practical learning is always better than the academic knowledge and with the support of VR technology, actual exposure will increase.
Surgeons can perform virtual surgeries for practice; pilots can feel the pressure before actually facing it and much more. With this technology, we can learn from experts. Concepts like a virtual library have already come into existence (EON Reality has developed one), and big companies like Google are already seeding schools with 1lakh VR headsets.
Improved quality of life
With the enhancement in virtual reality, our life will become better. VR technologies will make smartphones smarter, and many more smart tools like VR goggles, VR devices will flood the market. With VR, we can enjoy history (which is boring theoretically), can explore the space (from Earth), can see the surface of the moon in 3D and much more. All areas of our life will become better and more practical.
