What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality refers to the duplicate experience that could be the same or totally different from the real world. In a technical way, Virtual Reality is a computer-generated environment with locations and objects that is real, from which the user feels immersed in their surroundings. If we talk about the examples then there are lots of them like stereo headphones, three-dimensional, head-mounted stereo television goggles, data-gloves. 

VR lets us allows to indulge in video games like we were one of the characters, to make us learn how to perform heart surgery. Many people examine that one of the first VR devices known as “Sensorama” which is a machine with a built-in seat that played 3D movies, generated vibrations to make the experience as soon as possible. 

What are the different uses of Virtual Reality?

There are lots of applications of virtual reality which are given below:

  • Virtual Reality in Military
  • Virtual Reality in Education
  • Virtual Reality in Healthcare
  • Virtual Reality in Entertainment
  • Virtual Reality in Flight Simulations
  • Virtual Reality in Engineering
  • Virtual Boot Camp

How Virtual Reality Reacts the Technology in the Future?

Nowadays, the market is in demand of applications that go beyond unemployment, marketing, or tourism and also which users can afford. Multinational companies of technologies are already working to develop headsets that don’t need cables and allow pictures to be seen in HD. As they are developing Virtual Reality Headsets in 8K and with powerful processors. In the next few years, they may be merged with Artificial Intelligence. 

Let’s Discuss the Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is a highly visual, multimedia method of presenting the related digital information in a physical environment that connects the employees and improves business outcomes. If we use AR Technologies, remote assistance could be performed in real-time. This is necessary for better inspection and maintenance as well as technical support.  Manufacturers and Smart cities also include technologies of navigation and urban planning. 

There are a few Applications of Augmented Reality which are given below:

  • Medical Training 
  • Retail
  • Repair and Maintenance 
  • Design and Modelling 
  • Business Logistics
  • Tourism Industries 
  • Classroom Education
  • Field Service

People feel more comfortable seeing virtual objects through their natural field of vision via augmented smart glasses. This could change many industries, mainly retail. AR is more focused on Technology for the smartphone, as compared to the native one. 

As many people are experiencing augmented reality through mobile apps, which is not the only way to experience the technology. Web-based Augmented Reality is the more accessible route of development that does not need users to download apps. 

Differentiate between Virtual and Augmented Reality

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are two very different things in two different ways. VR replaces reality, takes you somewhere. AR adds to reality, gives information on top of what you have already seen. They are both powerful technologies. They can completely change like how we use computers in the future, whether one or both will succeed is anyone’s guess right now.
