Virtual Reality Now Transforms Industries in 5 Different Ways
Consumer products generally take a long period of time to bring out the best product. It’s very rare that at the first step the product reaches the best mark. Here are the initial VR products being launched, all of which have great qualities:
- Oculus Rift
- HTC Vive
- Sony Play Station VR
- Samsung Gear VR
- Google’s Cardboard
It has made its benchmark in the 21st century and in the year 2016, technology will be peaking. Even though each company doesn’t expect to sell millions of products this year, it is believed that VR market, its hardware and software will reach $30 billion by 2020.
VR is not just transforming the gaming and entertainment zone but rather VR has its effect and implementation in lots of industrial as well as social sectors.
The following 5 areas are a glimpse of how VR is interestingly being incorporated:
1) Live Events
Most of the time, VR sports and entertainment content is recorded before a telecast. But now time and technology has been so advanced that with the help of companies such as NextVR, they are going to be broadcasted live. Golden State Warriors’ NBA opener as well as Universal and iHeart Radio are planning on live streaming VR.
2) Property Dealings/Real Estate
Matterport, a software company, uses cameras ad applications to help companies such as Redfin and Beverly Hills’ Altman Brothers. With the help of VR they make 3D models for customers to give them an easy image of open houses. Similarly, hotels also use VR experience to give a virtual tour.
3) Fashion World
8i, a New Zealand’s company has introduced volumetric VR. This enables users to move around a complete scene and see what people are doing and get the complete image of what the people are wearing. This could transform the fashion world and potentially keep influencing it in the decades to follow.
4) Medical Field
Medical Realities, a company in Britain, has established a virtual surgeon tool to train the doctors. This helps them vision the whole operation with the doctor’s eye, making learning easy. VR HealthNet also uses VR technology for training the nurses and other professionals in the medical field.
Last but not least, military training also has incorporated VR. Examples include Britain’s Plextek and Korea’s DoDAAM military corporations which both have established VR military training programs.
The list will not end here as VR will be used in many other fields in the near future.
