Hyderabad:Virtual reality is in the limelight no doubt and it has had a positive influence on people’s lives. Yet, there have been myths floating about it, but one must not let these misconceptions overcome the benefits that virtual reality provides.
Virtual reality (VR) has indeed generated a lot of interest over the years — some positive and some not so positive. It does make use of computer technology in order to create simulated environments that allow users to feel as though they are fully immersed — physically and mentally — in these compelling 3D spaces.
3 Virtual reality Myths That Are Unreal
No doubt, tech workers and other professionals who are able to understand the ins and outs of technology have been among the first to dabble with VR software as well as hardware solutions. People make use of virtual reality headset at home and even hardware setups in order to explore new destinations, consume educational content, build configurable products, and also interact with a physical workspace. Virtual reality will indeed make much impact in the future.
The question that arises several minds is whether VR is able to outweigh possible negatives. No technology is indeed considered to be perfect, and any sort of technology can be misused or abused — and VR is no exception. Yet criticism must not override the benefits.
Myth 1: VR Is a Passing Fad
The merging of artificial intelligence and VR will revolutionize both fields and will be very important for the entertainment industry it is understood.
Also, it helps the hearing impaired by detecting sounds and visually impaired by detecting objects. The widespread of 5G will empower VR. The high speed and the low latency of 5G technology will indeed enable computationally intensive applications to be executed in the cloud. This will no doubt also have a significant impact on the export industry.
In about a decade’s time, VR could very well be the norm in the day-to-day lives of several people.
Myth 2: VR Is Just for Gamers & Tech Geeks
Growth is on the horizon, but it is definitely not just about gaming.
VR could revolutionize the car buying based experience in the future. While there are some people who do enjoy heading down to the dealership lot, looking at vehicles and prefer to strike a deal, many do not enjoy the process at all. But VR stands to make the entire process less overwhelming and more consumers friendly.
VR does not simply flood the user with the sensation of being transported. It floods the user with required data. If one goes in for car purchasing process today, one can identify a make and model one likes and one then can walk around a car lot to sit in different vehicles with different specs as well as trims. Whereas with VR experience one will see the difference between a black interior or a tan interior, instead of finding a different car with a potentially different exterior color, all of those options and others can in fact change in front of oneself in real time.
Myth 3: VR Will Create Mindless Zombies Incapable of Living in the Real World
Will VR indeed create a generation of people who are so removed from the real world that they cannot relate to; much less empathize with, other people? It is to the contrary, according to recent research. Those who took part in a VR experience focusing on losing a job or becoming homeless does demonstrate stronger and more sustained empathy towards people who are homeless compared to people who simply tend to read an article that focuses on homelessness. Other benefits of VR include, but are not limited to, boosting retention and recall, simplifying complicated issues as well as situations, and helping people with different learning styles.
VR — the Road from Here
While there is, of course, plenty of upside on the VR front that does not mean that it is perfect. A lot of the factors do limit the mass market appeal of VR are hardware related, but in due course, it is hoped it will get resolved.
