In this article, I am going to be talking all about virtual reality and how some people have created some misconceptions about it. Virtual reality or VR, is an amazing piece of technology that can actually displace a lot of legacy visual training, communication media and marketing. It has had substantial impacts in a lot of industries that include the automotive industry, the gaming industry, the architecture industry, the healthcare industry, the education industry, the casino industry and more. It has penetrated a lot of industries, indeed because it can actually make lives a lot easier. Virtual reality technology is relatively a very new technology that was invented in the past decade, and there are so many misconceptions about it already. Here are a few virtual reality meets that will be debunked with the help of facts.
- A lot of people seem to think that virtual reality and augmented reality of the same. AR and VR are not the same. In augmented reality, you will be enhancing a real-life environment with the help of computer-generated images, but, in virtual reality, you will be switching to an entirely computer-generated environment. Virtual reality is a very immersive experience which you can actually get lost into. Augmented reality is basically looking into a device that scans your environment and shows you certain things, and it will also show you how it would look if you happened to enhance it. For example, it can show you what an object would look like if it were to exist in that space. It’s like looking at how a sofa would look in an empty room. Except, you would be looking at how the sofa would look on your device.
- A lot of people seem to think that the virtual reality headset cost is incredibly high. Virtual reality headsets used to be really expensive, but not anymore. You can get one for $200. Some can we even met with $10. With the increased use of virtual reality in a lot of industries, they are becoming more and more affordable.
- A lot of people seem to think that virtual reality is only for gamers and that it only belongs in the gaming industry. Nothing could be further from the truth. The gaming industry is definitely adopted virtual reality in an aggressive manner, because it can actually be used a lot in that industry. But, virtual reality is something that is being used in a lot of industries across the world. It is being used for training and learning purposes, as well. For example, it is used in the healthcare industry for training students and also helping the patients see many procedures. Another example is that virtual reality helps pilots and astronauts experience what they will be experiencing when they are flying or when they are in space.
- A lot of people seem to think that virtual reality games are very boring. I would like to say that VR games are some of the most engaging and immersive experiences that I have ever had. VR can actually hack your senses like sight, sound and touch, when you are immersed deeply in this spectacular technology.
