Virtual reality is a digitized view of the future

What is the virtual reality?

Adapted virtual reality programs allow you to look into the digital world through the eyes of an ordinary person. Certain sensors and transmitters are used to create a sense of presence, which are synthesized and transferred to the program for creating a virtual reality system. In other words, all actions taking place in the real world (taking into account human reactions to events within the programmed digital reality - VR) find their response and display in the visible image.

Dive into VR - what are gadgets for immersion and digital reality?

Specialized technologies of virtual reality create an impressive digital world with the help of a rather complex system of programs and signal interaction. Special cascade devices for connection to Virtual Reality (VR) are limited to a special helmet only in case of entertaining or introductory programs. Complex systems of sensors and display devices are used for a closer acquaintance with the digital world of a virtual program. What is VR actually? It is the ability to fly on a fairy dragon without getting up from a home sofa for gamers or designing a spaceship right in space for scientists.

VR devices - what is it?

The virtual reality playback devices are conventionally divided into several basic types:

  • The VR helmet or glasses are special devices that are put on and fixed at the eye level of the user. They allow you to look at the virtual space and even interact with it in a limited mode. Special gloves, manipulators or overhead sensors are used to connect user actions with helmets and glasses. It allows primitive manipulation of digital objects in VR (virtual reality) mode.
  • MotionParallax3D displays. Advanced virtual reality technology, which allows you to manipulate large objects and interact with 3D images. Virtual displays could be used to build entire rooms, working on the principle of Virtual Reality Technology. They are widely used to simulate situations and spaces that are not accessible to the average person - for example, to model interactions with objects in space or in fantasy worlds of video games.
  • Virtual Retinal Display (VRD). At the moment, the most advanced technology for displaying the Virtual Reality System. The image is transmitted directly to the retina of the eye during work and human interaction, forming the most accurate and detailed model of virtual reality.

Augmented reality and VR - what is it and how is it different?


Note that virtual reality is a world created by the digital program or a limited virtual space. Same time, the technologies of augmented reality have been widely used in the modern world, but the augmented and virtual reality - are completely different technologies. Virtual and augmented reality creates digital display objects that are inaccessible to display or interact without gadgets but augmented reality creates these objects directly in the field of view of a person. For example, augmented reality can display a recipe for cooking pasta on the wall of your kitchen while you manipulate your kitchen appliances, while you’re standing at your ordinary kitchen room. In turn, VR technology simulates both the kitchen, and pasta, and kitchen tools.

Virtual life and human manipulations

Fans of the movie "The Matrix" often wonder whether virtual reality can be so effectively virtually submitted that it will be indistinguishable from objective reality. Indeed - what VR is at the level of tangibility of digital objects? There is no unambiguous answer to this question at the current level of development of VR technologies, but even now it is possible to interact with digital objects quite widely. Different types of virtual reality are applied now for modeling in the industry and in the sphere of high technologies. Even modern architecture projects could be designed in VR mode - virtual reality provides fantastic conditions and prospects for the design work of engineers and scientists.

Thanks to special gloves or sensors that transmit motor signals from your hands and feet, you can touch objects and even feel their tangibility in the limited sense of the word. The virtual world allows finding the user in a space in which he, even theoretically, cannot get into real life. VR technologies have a fantastic future and huge prospects for practical application in the form of testing grounds in conditions that could be dangerous in the ordinary interaction. Virtual Reality (VR) is the future of entertainment and design.
