Imagine yourself roaming around your new home, even before it is built….. Driving a luxury car; even if it doesn’t exist… all this might sound naive but is possible with Virtual Reality.
VR setups that are able to provide a higher level of data to the user are called haptic systems.
In accordance with gaming, virtual reality generally refers to computer-generated 3D environments. The level of interaction depends on the context of the game; how the headset and controllers allow you to enter into that game.
Types of VR
Generally, there are two primary development pathways that VR has tended to follow: stationary and mobile.
Mobile is more accessible, with the format based heavily on smartphones and their built-in features. With an investment of under Rs5000 if you already own a smartphone, you can get a Google Daydream View to access games, puzzles and short videos.
By investing some more, you can step up to something like the Oculus Go or HTC Vive for a more robust virtual experience.
Stationary VR technology often uses standalone multi-projector setups in a fixed space. These include a headset along with motion-detecting technology, like gloves and controllers, depending on their sophistication.
Having additional components included, this is the more expensive of the two types of VR, but tends to be more immersive, giving rise to wider applications beyond the gaming industry. Cost kept aside, the market continues to expand and add new options.
How does virtual reality work
Both types of VR are related, thanks to the motion-sensing components, it also depends on head tracking provided by the headset displays built to render 3D environments in VR
Virtual reality (VR) hardware and headsets are getting comfortable and affordable enough for mainstream consumption, and the quality is crisp and clear.
the tech to develop such kind of entertainment experience in VR is advancing almost daily.
Tech Giants like Sony, HTC, Samsung, Facebook are currently working in the tech and VR has also marked its presence in the gaming industry with the games like PUBG and GTA
Most importantly, this technology will transform the nature of both entertainment and education. It won’t be long before 360-degree programming will place viewers in the breathtaking Egyptian tomb or face-to-face with the “Mona Lisa.” All of these experiences will be available to viewers from the comfort of their couch and the convenience of their phone, tablet or another device.
There are many more potential uses for the innovative technology than just research and learning like
Courtroom evidence Instead of looking at photographs, VR could let jury members look and evaluate crime scenes and evidence in 3D.
Military Virtual reality has already been adopted by the military worldwide where it is used for training purposes before troops are deployed.
