Although there are some excellent VR (Virtual Reality) games available out there today, the way MR, AR and VR technologies are going to shape the future is going to be about so many different ways than just gaming. Below, we take you through some prominent industries where VR technology is already under use and is making a difference.
A lot of sports books are using VR technology for creating multiple betting options for the punters, enabling them to make the most of their knowledge of specific sports. To give you an example, you can sign up with a prominent bookmaker like Betfair using the Betfair promotion code 2019, and if they’re offering VR-enable betting you can define a certain area on the court, using your headset and controls, and then bet on a specific player scoring from that area. All such types of micro bets will gain prominence going forward, apart from prop bets focused on aspects such as speed, efficiency, breakdowns and more.
In the field of online casino games, you can easily play multiplayer poker in a virtual reality environment today, as if you were sitting in an actual casino, and can even read the body language of other players. Here’s what the future of VR and online poker looks like.
One area which is already being disrupted by VR in a big way as healthcare industry. It’s possible for healthcare professionals to use virtual models today before carrying out any job or a real body. VR is also helping burns patients to get relief from pain. Many experts are suggesting use of VR technology for treating mental health issues, considering the fact that Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy is extremely effective in anxiety and PTSD treatment.
Virtual reality enables designers and engineers to carry out multiple experiments with the build and appearance of a vehicle, prior to construction of expensive prototypes. Big brands like Jaguar Land Rover and BMW are already using this technology for conducting early engineering and design reviews, to check multiple aspects of the vehicle, before spending money on the manufacturing of its physical parts. This way, virtual reality is saving millions of dollars for this industry.
VR is rapidly changing the manner in which architects go about designing and experimenting with their creations. It helps them not only to get a good view of how their creations will look like in the future, but also understand how they will feel.
Homeowners on the other hand can walk through the spaces even before their physical construction, and carry out any changes if required, saving both the architect and customer plenty of money and time. Not to forget the significant increase in the satisfaction level of the buyers, as the project will get completed on time without any delays. Please note, even though architects have been using 3D models for a long time, the use of immersive tools enables them to explore and understand the spaces at a very deep level.
