There are many people who dream of having a matured and fully functional virtual reality technology. It is like creating a world separate to the real world. Unfortunately, there is no significant breakthrough yet to allow application of virtual reality technology in various industries. However, it is not far-fetched to think that within a few decades, a potential breakthrough in virtual reality research could jump-start a whole new development.
Here is a look on the future of virtual reality.
1. Virtual games – Virtual reality can be considered the pinnacle of the gaming industry. Novels about virtual reality games have been written out of the aspirations of gamer to play games in a virtual reality setting. The most popular of all is a full dive platform where people wear virtual helmets and have their consciousness in a virtual world.
2. Virtual shopping – The negative aspect of online shopping is that you never really get a true sense of the product as you look at the photos, watch videos and read product descriptions. This will not be the case once people can shop in the virtual market.
3. Professional practice – It is impossible for all doctors to get equal opportunity in practicing their craft. You might be doing meager jobs for the first few years. Your inexperience is also a factor in which you would commit mistakes in the field. If you truly want to gain experience, you will have to travel to countries and places which are in dire need of doctors like a battlefield or a remote location. Doctors and other professionals will not worry anymore if virtual reality can provide them enough opportunities.
4. Virtual meeting room – Businessmen are also a direct beneficiary of virtual reality. It costs a lot to go on a business trip. Only a specific place can play a positive role for business meetings. You can save a lot of money if you can have a similar meeting but do it in the virtual world.
5. Virtual business – There is money to be made in virtual reality. There are plenty of business opportunities just with the creation of a virtual world. There is virtual real estate. Virtual items are also marketable. Both of these are not possible to acquire in real life but could be worth just as much as or even higher than their real life counterparts.
6. Future recreational activities – You will have a way better movie experience compared to the present movie technology. You can visit any place within the movie as you like. Virtual reality will influence other recreational activities just like the movie.
7. Virtual planning – It would consume many years just to develop the right design for a spaceship. The performance of a spaceship cannot be accurately predicted just by measurements and calculations alone. Virtual simulation is your ideal assistant.
The influence of virtual reality cannot be estimated unless it can be applied in society.
