What is virtual reality?
As the technology is now getting into a revolutionary phase, many things like Virtual reality has come up. VR is also a new term in computer technology. It uses Virtual reality headsets, often in combination with physical spaces that generates real looking images, sounds and other phenomena and simulate a user's physical presence in a virtual or imaginary world.
By using VR tech equipment the user is able to "peep" into the artificial world. All this is possible with the help of a VR headset. VR headsets are like goggles that are mounted on head with a screen in front of the eyes. Programs may include audio and sounds through speakers or headphones.
Possibilities of VR
We’ll see some of the inventions that are built using the potential of VR tech.
1. Learn Music
The two students of NYU Shanghai Sean Kelly and Sam Shi tried to use the potential of VR to increase access to information. They developed a platform ‘Teach-U’ that works on latest VR tech and allows students, and particularly young people, learn music.
According to them they got this idea in order to help young people develop their creativity. As everyone not have enough money or much leisure time to learn in the company of a teacher, VR tech can be the platform that help them to study at a much lower cost or without any distances problem.
For start, the service supports only two instruments, drums and piano.
2. Samsung’s VR Headset
Samsung also showed its VR headset prototype at MWC in march. It's labeled "Exynos VR III,". Also its previous version naming Exynos VR was also launched. It's powered by a 10nm SoC with Mali G71 graphics. It's capable of powering dual "WQHD+" displays (2560 x 1440 or something close to that) at 90Hz, or one 4K display at 75Hz.
The headset has gaze tracking addition to hand tracking and facial expression recognition.
Also, there are talks that several tech firms are working on stand-alone VR hardware, may be Google. But this is the first time we're hearing of Samsung actually having a product in the works, as opposed to just proof-of-concept prototypes.
