The Amazing Possibilities Of VR: Key Developments

img

When we think of virtual reality (VR), we usually associate it with gaming. But there is so much more to it!

Exciting developments are taking place in the VR world as we speak, and enthusiasts continue to keep a watchful eye on the trends to make the most out of them. VR may soon become a major driving force of growth in various industries in an increasingly tech-driven world. Keeping this in mind, we will be taking a deep dive into this subject at our 2022 tech events in Las Vegas and Dubai. If you would like to stay updated, do check out its agendas.

Here, the question may arise: can VR tech actually play a role in uplifting society? Can it go beyond being just another tool for gamers? The answer to both of these questions is a big, resounding yes! VR has immense potential; it goes beyond entertainment purposes and can enhance the quality of life of millions of people around the world, making our lives easier, and probably, a lot safer too.

Here are just a few sectors in which virtual reality tools have shown a lot of promise:

VR & Health

VR has numerous uses in the health care, fitness, and wellness arenas. For instance, doctors-in-training can interact with VR simulations before operating on actual human bodies. VR can also be used to calm patients down during MRI scans, especially children who are fearful of confined spaces.

In addition to this, did you know VR engagement may also help reduce the need for anesthesia during orthopedic surgeries? While more research is being done on its actual efficacy, this is a huge development that can be the key to a medication-free approach to pain management.

VR & Sports

VR has become significantly popular in the sports arena. From racing, golf to American football, no field has been left untouched! VR can be an excellent training tool across a variety of sports. Let’s take the example of NASCAR races. Racers can simply strap on a VR headset that recreates the track as well as driving conditions to help them practice and to study new techniques.

In addition to this, VR can completely transform the average viewer’s watching experience. As exhibited at the best tech events in Dubai, remote fans may soon enjoy the “live audience” experience by signing up for VR tickets. In fact, they may even be able to position themselves right in front of their favorite player on the field!

VR & Education

Currently, there is a lot of interest in the use of VR in improving pedagogical models and making learning more immersive.

With VR tools, children can experience concepts rather than simply reading about them. Not only can students interact with each other within a three-dimensional environment, but they also get to learn how things work in the real world. This includes visiting a different era, understanding the solar system, or learning the names of animals.

Also, VR can be particularly beneficial in teaching social skills to children living with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). It simulates a calm, roleplaying environment wherein they can practice skills like making eye contact and speaking.

Clearly, it’s an exciting time to be in the VR industry! If you would like to learn more about major trends and developments in the VR world, check out the Internet 2.0 Conference, one of the most awaited IT conferences of 2022, which will take place in the beautiful cities of Las Vegas and Dubai!
