4 Of The Coolest Things We'll Do In Virtual Reality

4 Of The Coolest Things We’ll Do In Virtual Reality

Virtual reality can be a tricky technology to follow, because it’s spread over so many devices, industries, and concepts. Granted, most of the attention goes right to gaming, and it’s fair to look to this area for changes that will impact the technology’s overall evolution. But if you’re really interested in how you might one day be using VR (and possibly quite soon), it helps to expand your horizons. These are just four of the coolest ways in which people will likely be using VR sooner rather than later.

1. Arcade Gaming

There is more and more news coming out about public arcade venues seeking to help virtual reality break into the mainstream. The idea is simple: headsets are expensive, and the most convincing VR experiences require space for movement, and sometimes additional equipment. Public arcades solve these problems by providing high-end equipment and open space specifically designed for gaming. It may well be that periodically paying for some time in a VR arcade is ultimately more appealing to consumers than buying expensive home headsets. Thus, it seems fairly likely that in the near future we’ll actually go back to gaming arcades as we did in the ‘80s and ‘90s, just to experience the best in VR.

2. Sports Viewing (& Betting)

Spectatorship and betting on sports actually comprise major industries that are already more dynamic than many assume. The days of watching sports on cable and calling in to a sportsbook are on the way out. Nowadays people get a lot of their sports through online streaming, and betting platforms adopt the most up-to-date software and features to provide smooth, interactive environments. It’s likely that sports fans in the near future will be able to enjoy all of this together through VR. Combining streaming with interactive digital features, we’ll be able to view contests from all angles and possibly place bets or view statistical information in digital formats before our eyes, in real time.

3. Exercise

Just as VR arcades are providing public spaces for people to enjoy VR games, gyms may do the same. There are already several exciting examples of large pieces of equipment designed for full-body VR activity. For instance, you might climb into an apparatus face-down and suspended above the ground and then manipulate that apparatus to simulate flying in a VR program. On the surface it looks like it’s just for fun, but some of these experiences will stretch and work a full range of muscles such that they function as effective workouts. Don’t be surprised if the near future of exercise has a lot of overlap with VR developments.

4. Location Scouting

This can (and will) actually mean a lot of different things. Most notably, VR will allow us to travel around the world seeing new places and in some cases interacting with famous landmarks and similar attractions. Discovery and Google have already teamed up on an exciting program that will facilitate these activities. However, the broader concept of scouting out locations in VR can also be put to use in other ways. We’ll have the chance to tour houses through VR real estate apps, students will be able to virtually visit prospective colleges, etc. This could actually become one of the bigger uses for VR in the near future.

Virtual reality is a concept of technology that is completely saturating the user from the real world and allowing user to be in a synthetic environment.
    The drawback on this kind of technology is its application on the real world and the cost of equipment. Accuracy should be the primary priority in order to make minimal difference in the virtual environment and in the real world.

    1. Industries like tourism and real estate can be the most beneficial since landscape architectures and infrastructure design can be made on a virtual environment. These will provide convenience to the architects’ and engineers’ planning and implementation processes.

    Virtual reality the vivid perspective of how things appear as they are. It would surely be helpful in some industries like real estate, tourism and production. Using production as example it happens when there is product to produce and be sold to the market. ” How is it done?” ” What are the raw materials used?” ” How careful is the process so we can make sure that product is durable?” Be mindful of these questions when clients pave your way. Through virtual reality we can be able to show through a simplified virtual representation of each step a product has undergone before it fully reach its final state. Some clients may dont exactly know what they want and need, showing macro and micro details of the product would definitely help them choose. This could also serve your market positioning that makes you different from any other competitors

    It’s really amazing how our technologies are improving. Kudos to those who invented this, by putting their imagination into reality. The first time i heard about virtual reality was during the launching of media-tech business of a local celebrity and it really got my attention how this VR works. It completely blocked you from your actual surroundings and immerse you entirely into a different reality.
    Due to new trends in technology and fast changing market, virtual reality can be very useful to tourism industry. They can easily market their place because tourist can have an idea of what they can actually experience in a specific place. It could probably increase the willingness of a tourist to visit the place since they can have a 360 degree experience of the place.
    In the field of production, VR can be very helpful in creating a better product that meets the needs of every consumers. Production team can use VR to check errors and other issues in their products. Production employees can also be trained using VR.
    As to real estate, you can present the property you are selling without an actual visit of the site. You can save time and it can give an excitement to your potential buyer since he/she can see what the place you are selling really look like. They can roam around the property without spending so much time and effort. It would be easier for the realtor to sell a property since using VR, possible buyer can design the place or can think of possible designs. Realtors can also present different properties without actually bringing the buyers to the site. Virtual reality experience are more interesting for buyers than looking at a magazine or pictures. They can already see the exterior and interior designs of houses/condominiums that are not yet built to have a clear look of what is being offered to them.

    I had never known such things and innovation of technology exist. It is good to know that as time goes by people are also improving not just the way they live their life but as well how to make things work.
    In the area of tourism, through the use of VR the scope on how you market a certain place or locale would be made more possible and accessible in such a way that you could market it by not only showing it to people on pictures of booklets or magazines, but it gives you the feels being immersed in it.
    As to production VR will give a perspective as to how the product would look like in a real life scenario. It give the people the chance and capacity to explore what just visible to the naked eye, but could experience it.
    As to real estate, People will have an opportunity to specifically see and locate the facade may it be a house, a building or the estate itself in a way that is somewhat closer to what is real and visible. Sometimes its good not just to see things,but its also good to feel it and that you are really there and you would know the feeling, how it would look like , and what could you adjust and foresee. And this are just the few things VR technology could help with ease and with regards to the choices and experience they would make.

    As what Albert Einstein said, your imagination will take you everywhere. With virtual reality, what seems impossible can be made possible. What we think is unreachable can be made reachable. And what we once perceived as unattainable can be made attainable.

    Virtual Reality has a lot of possitive outcomes and can be both advantagous in the field of tourism and real estate. VR offers you an experience almost similar to an actual environment. It will give you a close to reality or the same feeling of being in a certain place or environment without actually being there. Promoting tourisim and real estate this way can hype the excitement of possible tourists in visiting the actual place. Because of VR, possible tourists will be more thrilled to experience the feeling of sand on their toes while they chase the big waves, or to be able to smell the beautiful flowers they just once saw in Virtual.

    In the field of real estate, imagine being able to present the property to the client without an actual site visit. We should remember that time is money and every second counts. Clients are usually busy and do not have time to go to long distance places to visit the site just to actually check it. With VR, we can cut the distance, cross boundaries and save our clients precious time and effort. All we have to do is let him use a VR device and voala!, he can now see the property without actually being there. He can even try to change the paint color of the property according to his taste and specifications.

    VR gives our clients a preview of what they can possibly experience in the most prestige and eminence way possible.

    Gone are the days of limits and boundaries for we are now entering a new era of advancements. We are now living in a world where we turn each opportunities to endless possibilities. So let us all take advantage of these technological discoveries so we can overcome bounderies and make ourselves limitless both in personal and professional aspects of ourlives.

    Virtual Reality (VR) offer a tangible experience to a customer to avoid unmistakable expectation to a particular place, they can see where they will go and see what’s occurring in that area particularly for the individuals who spend a sum for a visual visit. This item (VR) enables us to involve and view the said place (Hotels, Restaurants, Resort, Property and Attractions) from lobby, dinning and to bedroom, in this way the potential traveler may watch and figure out how the VR video helps them decide in purchasing the tours arranged by an entity (Travel and Tours, Office or Local Travel Center) rather than offering travel leaflet, magazines and pamphlets. The advantage of this is for us to convey a place that is untouchable however enabling them to appreciate and see it. Notwithstanding, on the business side all VR ought to be refreshed and updated to keep away from false notion and deluding the individual out of their desires and expectations.

    Virtual reality is a trend nowadays. It excites me to think that even if something is far away from you or you want to do will be available to see right away in the way of using Virtual Reality.
    In the field of tourism, people will always have the urge or interests in seeing what the place or the environment looks like. With the help of virtual reality, it will be easy for resort owners or other businesses to market their place because people can have a glimpse of how it feels to be in a place they have never been before and the experience that they expect to happen when the time comes to be in the exact place.
    Virtual Reality is very useful for real estate because it would be easy to market the product or houses that the real estate agents sells to their clients. Clients will have the opportunity to easily see or roam around the house that they want to buy through the use of virtual reality and not spending much time to travel just to see the house.
    For me Virtual Reality will be some of the necessary tool in the future in the field of business because it would help the business to make the marketing job easy and attractive to customers.

  21. I have already seen and used VR with some of my real estate clients. It is really incredible to be able to virtually walk through a home and see key points.
