    Past and Future of Virtual Reality

    In fact, we’ve been trying to capture “Virtual Reality” for more than the last five to ten years. Look-in toys were popular in the 1950s and indoor flight simulators were first introduced in the 1960s, but the idea of VR goes even further.

    As early as the 1930s, science fiction writers, inventors, and fixers dreamed of an environment where you could escape reality through art and machinery. We were discussing questions about Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality long before we had the technology to make them possible.

    Technology has caught on, and market researchers have predicted rapid growth for the VR industry.

    Virtual Reality

    VR is now a world-renowned high-end technology. It’s so gripping that it tricks your senses into thinking you’re in a different setting or a world apart from the real world. You will experience a computer-generated world of video and sound where you can move or manipulate objects with touch controls while connected to the console or computer using a head-mounted display (HMD) or headset.

    Using Virtual Reality Technologies

    From games to movies to medicine, the use of Virtual Reality is becoming more and more common.

    – Health—In education, such as in surgical simulations
    – Film and TV—Creating unique experiences in movies and shows
    – Virtual Travel—Virtual trips to an art museum or another planet that you can take from your home
    – Professional sports—In training programs like STRIVR that assist professional and amateur athletes
    – Games—Over 1,000 games currently in use, from first-person shooter (FPS) games to strategy games and role-playing adventures

    What You’ll Need: Headers

    There are many VR headsets that differ according to their performance level and prices. While entry-level hardware such as Google Cardboard* uses your mobile phone as the display, PC-powered devices such as HTC Vive* or Oculus Rift* are more immersive by providing a superior VR environment. Microsoft; It has its own Windows* 10 Mixed Reality platform that uses some pretty impressive titles from Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Samsung.

    Some AR titles are available today, and more are said to be in the future. Microsoft Hololens*, Google Glass* and Meta 2* titles are good examples of this.

    Each HMD connected to the computer will have different system requirements, so if you are going to buy a new Virtual Reality headset, be sure to check the minimum system requirements recommended by the HMD vendor.

    What You’ll Need: Computers

    If you’re going to buy a new PC and are into VR, you’ll need a system that can handle heavy loads. When it comes to high-end desktops or laptops, the CPU, GPU and memory are the most important components for Virtual Reality (and other advanced tasks like gaming or video editing).

    If these high-performance components don’t work together, you can have a pretty bad experience. A powerful system; It’s guaranteed to have fun when you bend over, stand up or walk around. Delayed VR is impossible to respond to the virtual world in the way you expect, which leads to greater frustration and increases the risk of motion sickness.

    A high-end processor helps with location tracking and controls how realistic and effective your virtual environment will be, so you can enjoy an in-depth experience in a lifelike environment. Consider the latest generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor for a superior VR experience.

    A discrete graphics processing unit (GPU) is recommended or required if using Oculus Rift*, HTC Vive* and Windows Mixed Reality Ultra*. The GPU is responsible for rendering the high resolution and impressive visuals needed for VR. Oculus, HTC, and Microsoft have measurement tools that you can download from their websites and run on your computer to determine if your computer meets the minimum requirements for VR headsets.
