Understand how Virtual Reality Really works
If you have ever wondered how the virtual reality experience becomes so immersive, check out Oculus CTO John Carmack's WIRED challenge. He shares how VR systems work with so many brains!
"The technology behind modern virtual reality is rapidly evolving, but what exactly helps create a better sense of realism and immersion? WIRED has challenged Oculus CTO John Carmack to explain the concept of realism in virtual reality to 5 different people; a child, a pre-teen, a college student, a grad student and a VR expert. John goes over what makes his company's product, the Oculus Rift, so successful at creating convincing VR, as well as the initial hesitance to introduce the lower-powered Gear VR into the market".
The future is built by the people who believe it can be better.
The answer was glaringly obvious. At the movies, I was totally immersed in the experience. No calls, no texts - nothing to do except sit back and enjoy the show, whereas during our home experience, I heard the phone ringing, I responded to texts, and I answered emails. I had a totally different experience while viewing the same content. I wasn’t “immersed” the second time around.
Mark Zuckerberg was right. “The future is built by the people who believe it can be better.”
Nothing beats really good immersive VR, and Mark has his sights on bring this immersive experience to the masses. “We are setting a goal,” Zuckerberg said. “We want to get a billion people into virtual reality.”
Our team at Virtro is so excited to be a part of this wonderful immersive world.
