You’ll probably never go to Mercury, swim with shark, jump down from a thriller cliff, or sing onstage with the Rolling Stones. But if virtual reality ever lives up to its promise, you might be able to do all these things—and many more—without even leaving your home. Unlike real reality, virtual reality means creating a required world or completely imaginary world by using high-performance computers and sensory equipment, like headsets and gloves.
However, such kind of world is actually beyond the real life itself and our own feelings cannot evident our real experience in doing so. Some people even get immersed in VR and don’t want to go back to the real world again. Thus, is it worth buying a VR? I think the answer is still yes.
VR in education
When you are taking a geography class and all the teacher focused with are the quality data and motion law about all kinds of planets. I think everyone is easy to doze off. However, once VR come into the class, students will see the track of Earth closely in the VR world and walk along the sun slowly and excitedly.This kind of first-hand experience will absolutely improve their interests and effectiveness about learning.
VR in medical treatment
A research which was made by over 10 years of efforts has proved that being involved in VR can evidently reduce the pain and pressure of patients, which do well to the rehabilitation of them. Besides, by using VR, children with strabismus and amblyopia can be well treated. And restore normal vision as soon as possible.
VR in investigation of crime scene reconstruction
When all the data is collected and a 3D mode is made, the scene of crime can be restored. By doing this, the false picture and evidence can effectively be avoided and the jury can even enter into the remodeling of the 3D crime scene, observing each important detail in the crime scene. Unlike the edited video will affect the objectivity of jury, this form of evidence only record every scene objectively.
VR in news
Emblematic Group once sent the VR users to an unrealistic world where war was breaking out, beggars and hungry man were everywhere. And this made the people who entered into unrealistic world impressed a lot for their real horrible feeling when facing with it directly in VR. It is always more impressive and understandable when we experience it by ourselves. VR in news creates the chance for everyone to feel direful events in the world.
VR in manufacturing
By using the VR, manufactures will have a perception in the construction phase of the project, such as a submarine or apartment building. Many companies, like British BAE, Leland and Roll-Royce have used VR system to improve the manufacturing quality of products, reducing errors and avoiding rework.
To conclusion, VR created a new world for us and brought big convenience to social operation. As every innovation would be born with threatens, so does VR. But it is never wise to avoid trying new things only in view of threatens. Thus, to buy a VR is worthwhile.
