Virtual reality is not a new technology. However, just like fashion, technology trends are also just making a comeback. Virtual reality has been observed by many gaming enthusiasts as early as the 1980s. It has become somewhat popular and then fizzled out in the 90s.
Today, one of the biggest successes in VR technology is the Oculus Rift. It’s a crowd funded campaign that was launched because of its success.
The good news for VR technology is that it doesn’t have to be expensive. Oculus Rift can cost a lot of money. However, open source technology and mobile phones have changed how we look at virtual reality. Google Cardboard project, for instance, is now allowing users to enjoy VR technology the most inexpensive way possible. This allows the smart phone to track the person’s head movement.
These days, VR technology isn’t just about the games. There’s a possibility that adult industry is also going to capitalize on the VR technology that we have today. Could you imagine adolescents in the near future fixated on their mobile devices?
There are also the museums that are investing on the virtual reality experience. You will be able to experience the Museum of Stolen art without leaving your home. There are also the concerts that can potentially be viewed in 360 degrees and in 3D. One of which is the Live and Let Die Concert of Paul McCartney.
There are many potential thrills that 3D and VR technology can offer. In fact, even Mark Zuckerberg is already planning to utilize the technology by providing computer generated environments for people where they can hang out.
Though these show a lot of potential, let’s admit that VR gaming is still the most promising investment that tech companies could focus on these days. There are yet any big budget games rolling out with VR technology, but it is possible that we’ll soon be seeing games such as Grand Theft Auto in this type of set up.
Do you plan on investing on VR technology anytime soon? This can be a good idea especially if you are into games. VR technology can be promising for a lot of interested parties regardless if it’s a concert, a sport or even for the adult content. There are in fact a lot of contenders waiting for us. Not only is Oculus Rift the only gadget available in this niche. There’s also Microsoft Hololens and other products such as Sony Project Morpheus.
