The Impact of Virtual Reality In Our Modern World
Science and Technology never stops to make our life easier, better and more efficient. We can do a lot of tasks now simultaneously with just a click of a button which is very impossible to achieve before. When the computer era begun, every transaction, job and communication became faster and easier. Now that computers are here with us wherever we go, computer experts and enginners continue to look for better solutions for ordinary tasks.
One of the promising technology being used today is Virtual Reality or what is popularly known as VR in Singapore and other places. This uses a device worn just like goggles and it lets you inside a different world. Everything you can see there is simulated. It is a 360 degree display of certain images and video clips that makes you feel like you are actually there. The uses of Virtual Reality in Singapore is myriad. Ranging from the simple- just for fun- functions like enjoying a scenery of the different tourist spots in the world, to more complex functions like interactive gameplay and simulation of certain procedures.
There are a lot of jobs which require certain skills for the safety of their jobs. Take in to example simulating how to fly an airplane, helicopter or any other aircraft, or navigating a ship, submarine or any vessel. It is better to experience this first in virtual reality before actually trying it in an actual vessel or aircraft. It is safe for the applicant and also to the crew involved. It prevents and minimizes human errors thereby minimizing accidents in the future when the applicant is already handling actual aircrafts because the safety and lives of his passengers are dependent on his skills.
Another important use of simulation is in the medical field, specifically in surgery. Aspiring surgeons can practice and master their skills by completing certain, programs, steps and challenges. This is very timely because of the increasing number of laparoscopic surgeries. Surgeons can now perform index cases in computers instead of handling it for the first time in real patients. These simulated surgeries prepare the surgeon how to handle different scenarios during the operation, making the procedure safe for the surgeon and more especially to the patient.
Another use for VR, which is also a promising advertisement tool in Singapore is Video Production. There are different uses and advantages of video production in VR. Whether you are promoting a product, a scenery or a sport, using videos displayed in virtual reality lets the audience see more and interact with your product, there are videographers who are experts in making these videos, and capturing images which are important in the promotion of your product. The audience can actually listen and see the specifications of your product elevating your marketing strategy.
So the next time you like to go for an adventure, or try something new like driving or flying an airplane, try it first in virtual reality. The sights and sounds are so real it gives you the same feeling as if you are actually there. It is actually a cheaper way to experience more things while staying within the comforts of your home.
