Maybe it’s been a lifelong dream of yours to travel the globe in a hot air balloon? Perhaps the inner adrenaline junkie in you lives for the thrill of whipping and flipping at high speeds on your favorite roller coasters. Whatever your craziest desires may be, thanks to recent advancements in modern technology, your wildest dreams can now be morphed into reality… Virtual reality.
“Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person. That person becomes part of this virtual world and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.”
The concept of creating the illusion of reality is achieved through stimulation of user’s senses to provide a synchronized and mediated experience. Although this can be achieved in a number of ways, typically a headset is placed on the individual’s head, accompanied with headphones, to allow that user to fully immerse themselves into a whole new world and reality.
Although the potential entertainment value of VR is very clear, it isn’t necessarily just isolated towards gaming development. In fact, virtual reality can be used to enhance other forms of media in your everyday life and can be utilized for many other important applications as well.
Virtual reality can lead to new and exciting discoveries in areas such as architecture, sports, medicine, etc. With virtual reality, the possibilities are endless. As frequent advances in VR technology become cheaper and more widespread, we can certainly expect to be seeing many more innovative uses for the technology in the near future.
