Virtual Reality – The Next Big Thing
Virtual Reality is a computer simulated environment which gives the user a feeling of being in a new environment, instead of the one they’re actually in! It’s like the Doraemon’s gadget “Anywhere Door”, where you just open the door and you enter a completely new place! Sounds cool, isn’t it?
One of the best ways to experience Virtual Reality is through a headset which has a stereoscopic display. HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Sony Playstation VR, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard are some of the best VR headsets. It has the ability to track the user’s motions, particularly his/her head and eye movements i.e, when the user looks up and down or left and right, the view also shifts. It also allows the user to roam around within a physical space and interact with the objects in the virtual world.
Many games have already been developed which uses this technology and allows the user to be a part of the three – dimensional interactive environment! Some of the best VR games are,
*Don’t Touch Anything
These are some of the games out of a huge collection of games which everyone of you must try to experience the virtual reality of another world!
This is obviously going to be the next big thing! Not just for gaming, but Virtual Reality will also be used in classrooms to teach. Architects, astronauts, soldiers use VR in their work. For architects, it must be difficult to move objects like tables, chairs around while designing, but with VR, you can easily move objects around and design it efficiently and easily without shedding a drop of sweat!
The only way to fully understand it is to see it for yourself and experience the fun. It’s worth giving a try!
