VR or so called virtual reality represents a future of new inventions and technology. We had our first taste of the game Pokémon Go, and the world went crazy. To put it simply, VR is the future, and we should embrace it. The tech giants all over the world are investing their money into this industry and trying to create something remarkable, something that will shape their existence. They are working on new techniques and inventions in order to approach them to the public and make them affordable, which is the main point of this process.
This is the obvious step for most developers; they will try to demonstrate their skills in the gaming industry. Oculus already has a lot of titles to support the VR, and Sony is adjusting its headset where plenty of games can use it. Not all games will support VR, but what we have seen so far, the vast majority of them is heading towards that direction.
When we first encountered 3D movies, it seemed like something outside this world, but now we can even imagine one house that doesn’t have a 3D TV or at least smart one. The movie industry and TV developers will use the advantage of virtual reality in order to create remarkable things. This perspective could change to movie watching forever. Imagine being a part of the film, experiencing different situations and being involved in a plot, pretty remarkable, isn’t it?
We got used to looking the world on Google Maps, but think how much better would be seeing everything through your own eyes. One moment you can be in New Zeeland and the next, you can be sitting at the top of Empire State building. In the future, virtual reality will enable remote tours of the museum, famous buildings, countries, and cities. Even when you decided to buy a property, a real estate agent will give you a tour without leaving your home. If you don’t have money for traveling, VR will be your next best friend.
When we talk about perfecting their techniques, it’s better for doctors to train on something else than on real humans. It is also better for trainee surgeons to practice on things that aren’t plastic or gummy dolls and body parts. With the use of VR in medicine, we can create top experts who will be able to perform successful surgeries and create better procedures. Depending what model or technique they decide to use, VR will give them an opportunity to cure much illness and perform many successful procedures.
Putting cameras on the equipment and sending them deep into space, will open us many possibilities to explore the Universe. In this way, we can discover new constellations, worlds and maybe new populations similar to ours. This would also be a great opportunity for people to explore the space and get rid of telescopes once and for all.
