I really enjoyed my visit to digilab and seeing the innovative technologies there however I feel that currently these technologies are only targeted at a niche market, gamers. As someone who is not a gamer I don’t see how the technology would enhance my lifestyle in anyway. The only place where I think VR could be useful is if it was used during learning to drive, fly a plane or learning how to undertake surgery. This would allow the user to experience virtually any experience that could be potentially life threatening and how to cope and deal with the issue without being put in any physical risk.
I think these is scope for VR to enhance the lives of those who are disabled to experience (almost) life experiences that they might not be able to experience in reality.
I am expecting to be surprised by the advancements and applications of VR in the future.
