How VR Technology will Change our Lives

While games are a huge part of the VR world, there are also many practical and potentially life saving applications that we have thanks to VR. Samsung has been working with several hospitals to develop a program for Gear VR that is being tested to see how they can utilize virtual reality in pain management.

A program was revealed at the Vienna Auto Show in Austria that showcased a new program, using virtual reality, to help teach new drivers. One of the key focuses of the program was to show the dangers of talking on the phone or texting while on the road. The students will wear the headset, and be presented with realistic driving scenarios so they can experience what it would be like if they check their phones while driving. The program will include realistic crash scenarios to really hammer the point home. In the near future, this will be a mandatory part of the curriculum needed in order to obtain a driver’s license.

The online casino industry is also ready to embrace the exciting changes that are coming thanks to VR. One of the biggest obstacles that online casinos sites have had was to overcome in their recruitment of players is convincing them that playing at home can be just as fun as going to a casino. The casino has a great ambiance, with people all over, shouting in excitement, bells going off in the slots area, just going can be an experience in and of itself. The online casino offers great games and great promotions and prizes, but without the ambiance. Virtual reality has the ability to combine the feeling of walking through the casino floor and mimic the excitement of sitting at the tables. So players can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Of course, gaming is where VR is making their mark. As good as video games have gotten over the years, VR is ready to take it to the next level. Imagine playing Madden football, but seeing the game through the quarterback’s eyes. Or playing a first person shooter game that presents a full range of vision by simply turning your head.

The technology is still in its infancy and we’ll be seeing even more useful applications in the coming months and years.
