Our world and environment is slowly but surely becoming ‘designer-‘ or custom made. This is with the coming of virtual reality, a created environment and a product of advanced technology. Virtual reality traverses wide areas and has varied benefits basing on why exactly it is created in the given context. It has brought real change in the way things electronic are viewed and used.
The 3D television is one of the simplest versions of created environment. The production of programs for this television uses two cameras set apart just like the eyes are positioned. The images are captured very clearly and even the sound is out of this world. When one views the television, only blurred images will be seen as a special set of goggles are needed to make them clear. Many electronics manufacturers are producing these sets with the goggles which come separately. However, compared to other areas virtual reality is taking root, this is just but the tip of the iceberg.
Cloud storage is another invention that has really transformed business practice the world over. A business can store its data in a virtual memory over the internet instead of the traditional server or computer hard discs. Should the information be needed, all one needs is a password and an internet enabled device. One just logs into their accounts and access the information anywhere and anytime. Of course there are many advantages that are associated with cloud storage. A lot of information and data can be stored. One may not need so much investment in terms of the infrastructure as the storage, analysis or any form of processing of data is done in the cloud. The data is quite secure but accessible. The security of the data is constantly and automatically updated so one does not need to worry. Also, compared to physical infrastructure, cloud storage is quite affordable. You are made put in charge of controlling who access your information as you set your own passwords and other settings as you deem fit.
It is in the video games that virtual reality comes to life. Virtual reality headsets are the in thing. Many companies have invested in the headsets giving quite a range of options in line with enjoying the games. Among the companies are Samsung, Sony and Google among others. The headsets present a number of options to the buyer. Some like Samsung gear and Sony Play Station VR are tethered while Google Daydream view is mobile. Sometimes the tethering may limit movement but does not dilute the experience. While the Sony PS VR and Oculus Rift models will limit you to a seat, they still allow you to play almost any game. You may also need to be near a screen or PC set to make this happen. The HTC Vive Stream VR transforms your room into a cube and allows or rather enables you to move around in the course of your game. It however needs real heavy investment in the internet infrastructure. Gaming is never the same experience with the Virtual Reality headsets.
Again, virtual reality has given rise to virtual assistants. These assistants do almost anything from choosing the type of music to keeping schedules and controlling other electronic devices using the same or compatible operating systems. Amazon Echo, Google Home and Siri are some of the virtual assistants in the market.
There is so much more to be talked about in virtual reality and we expect that soon, even better devices are making the virtual even more real and affordably.
