This article talks about one of the many future uses of VR, as a means of education. You asked us what we thought the future of technology is, well Sir, I do believe this is it.

Pfaff, J (1 March, 2015). Virtual Reality is the Future of Career Education. EduKWest.http://www.edukwest.com/virtual-reality-is-the-future-of-career-education/


This article is an expansion on the idea of virtual reality and what it can do for us. It explains that virtual reality has the possibility of providing us with real life work experiences. Mentions the oculus also and discusses the potential of providing many people across the world at once a unique experience of the scenario in real time. Author states he himself is jumping on board and others should also try filling the gap between VR and online education. Technology allowing people to have a in-depth life like experience before having to really experience it is obviously important and will be massive if done properly.

Dylan Stimpson's curator insight, March 24, 2015 2:49 AM

To explain it, in its most simplest most, Augmented reality doesn't immerse you into a world with screen (you could do that by leaning into your monitor/TV)  but projects an image into your eyes (more specifically onto your retina) and makes the real world a giant interactive touchscreen with applications.


The idea as a whole is brilliant; its taking everyday tasks and implementing them into an interactive real world environment, however, although the concept may sound simple to create, the technology still has a long way to go yet and many challenges to overcome, but this does not detract from the fact that it will be one of the biggest jumps in how we operate in everyday life, in the same way the mobile phone and smart phones did.

Andrew McLellan's curator insight, March 24, 2015 8:50 AM

Lets say that virtual reality escapes the headset, and become our actual reality. a reality not so much science fiction, but one that adjusts to each individual depending on their person tastes in life. 

Dave Tyler's curator insight, March 24, 2015 10:32 PM

AR is not only going to effect you visual but it will effect the actual world you live in with all the devices  that you own being connected together by the internet of things and sensor that are connected to your body that feed information to your home before you get there to make sure that the dinners ready and the climate is right
