Virtual Reality :
The definition of virtual reality comes, naturally, from the definitions for both ‘virtual’ and ‘reality’. The definition of ‘virtual’ is near and reality is what we experience as human beings. So the term ‘virtual reality’ basically means ‘near-reality’. This could, of course, mean anything but it usually refers to a specific type of reality emulation.
why I made the first choice as virtual realities for unit 5 project?
I would like to say that my VR experiences before brought me into this project with interests. During my first experience with VR game, I felt like I blocked completely against the real-world which made me become a more active participant and that made myself give a question about how VR is using for different purposes and there are many examples.
Like for people who don’t have enough time or can not afford the travel cost, once they put on a VR gear they can totally explore another country with almost no money in seconds.That is really amazing deal actually.And you can tell it is realistic enough.VR will let people save a lot of time and money definitely. For another example, people who have some serious mental issues like the army who has paranoid by war or something they can be given mental treatment with VR in the future which is like they can transfer the fear into joys by games after many trials.
I have dreamed of building up the game with software for myself or as an interior designer, presenting my work to clients with VR tools. I felt like this VR is more about the space can be created.That is why I have captured by VR mostly.Also During research, I have found VR has a highly bright prospect in many dimensions such as education, sport, art and some mental issue treatment etc. Even today’s premium VR set ups are capable, immersive, comfortable and increasingly affordable.VR has a long history and captured the popular imagination for a long time and it is finally delivering. Why would I resist to learn the VR?
