Virtual reality is quickly gaining popularity, especially among people who love new technology. VR is still very new, and not something that most people consider useful. It is mainly a different form of entertainment. With VR, you get to experience a particular environment or movie as if you were actually in it.
The real question is, can VR become an important part of our lives? For most people, high quality entertainment is, in fact, a very important part of their lives. They will spend a lot of money on high quality entertainment devices. Some people like to spend a lot of money on big TVs, high tech tablets or phones. Most hand held devices now contain a bunch of big entertainment features. The main difference between a VR device and a hand held device is that a hand held device can do a lot more than just entertain a person. You can check your emails, send emails, get the latest news, check weather updates, monitor your fitness, monitor your heart rate, use navigation and video chat with friends on most smartphones and tablets. A VR device can only provide you VR entertainment.
VR in Video Games
For gamers, a VR headset can be quite a thing. We already have 3D surround technology, which is being used a lot by gamers around the world. VR is just one step above 3D surround.
If you really like to spend your time playing video games, VR can be a neat addition, especially if you are into horror games. With a good VR headset, you can dive right into the environment and get a feel for what it would be like to get into the world of the video game itself. For horror lovers, VR is a must. It will test your courage, as most VR horror games contain a lot of jump-scares. For shooting games, VR can provide you better vision and accuracy while firing your weapons. Most shooting game enthusiasts would love the big advantage that VR provides. You will be able to see your enemies clearly and have a better FOV. VR is great for racing games as well, as it can give you a complete view, 360 degree view, of your racing car. This will help you avoid collisions and drive more precisely.
VR for Smartphones
Smartphones have their own VR headsets, which rely on stereoscopic 3D applications. Such applications can only be viewed properly by using a VR headset. If you try to view them without a headset, you will only see two images in a split screen.
VR headsets for smartphones are quite cheap as they are using your smartphone as the main VR device. You only need to place your smartphones inside such a VR headset. You can watch movies and play games that support stereoscopic 3D on it. The only problem is that VR is still relatively new and there aren’t many games or movies out in the market that support it.
VR will continue to grow, and more developers and producers are trying to take advantage of what it offers. If you really want to be a part of the latest technology, VR is the next logical component to your collection.
