These Are Some of The Best VR Experiences in the World Today
Virtual Reality (or VR, as it is commonly referred to), has become a key technology for many in the events, entertainment and technology industries. Its ability to immerse users entirely within a constructed world has granted those looking to entertain, engage and sell a unique new way to grab the attention of the public. There are some truly innovative VR experiences out there right now, with the following 3 uses delivering fun and fascination for audiences like we’ve never seen before.
Right now video games are probably the most commonplace use for VR and most of us will be familiar with the concept – whether from news coverage, trade shows or from even owning a pair of goggles yourself (if you happen to be a VR early adopter!) Tipped as the next big feature for the gaming industry, VR is available for most platforms and an increasing amount of titles are being released with VR capability as standard. However, applying the tech to video games doesn’t necessarily mean that the final product is always triple A rated and highly polished. In fact, many developers are embracing gaming in order to test the current limits of VR and to research what kinds of virtual experiences (such as driving or flying) can be offered in a safe, exciting and manageable environment.
Big, red letter attraction names are deploying VR to astound and delight their customers, with pro VR company “The Void” being behind some of the most immersive experiences on the market to date. The Void aim to completely reinvent what it means to engage in VR and have developed technology that allows users to travel around a fully interactive space in real time / movement by mapping their virtual environment into a physical space.
This technology has led to ground-breaking and highly acclaimed experiences in North America and plans to expand into other locations are already confirmed (including a Star Wars- themed experience, reportedly). Madame Tussauds in New York for example houses a Ghostbusters experience, where outfitted with a proton pack you take on ghosts in a brilliantly realistic immersive world.
Just like with gaming visionaries, directors at the forefront of innovation are exploring the opportunities of VR in the film industry. The 360 application of VR goggles has seen popular series’ and films offering immersive add-ons, such as the Stranger Things (hit Netflix sci-fi horror) VR experience. It’s not just film and TV directors taking full advantage of the latest tech though. Many tourist boards and travel authorities are using 360 degree video to make virtual tours around noted landmarks a fully interactive and immersive way to advertise.
These however, are just a few uses for VR that are popular at the moment. The scope of VR technology is almost boundless and holds a lot of opportunities as a way to draw users into an immersive and involving world.
