7 Ways Virtual Reality Will Change The Future.

7 Ways Virtual Reality Will Change The Future.

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:

Gaming

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.

Movie Experiencing

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.

Travelling

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.

Learning field

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.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
