Oculus Execs Believe Controllers Are The Missing Link In Virtual Reality

Oculus Execs Believe Controllers Are The Missing Link In Virtual Reality | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
 When you put a child in virtual reality, they instinctively raise their hands hoping to see them, says Oculus CTO John Carmack.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Los VR headsets como el Oculus Rift pueden ser considerados por parte de una posible tecnología disruptiva que esta por venir, pero sin haber siquiera entrado al mercado, ya están provocando nuevos desarrollos y es que no es posible tener una completa experiencia inmersiva en un mundo virtual si no tienes tus cinco sentidos conectados en él. Así que los controladores manuales (handsets) que permitan incorporar tu sentido del tacto son definitivamente lo siguiente en venir.

Priceless Reactions To The Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset

Oculus Rift - Virtual Reality Headset for Immersive 3D Gaming
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Este video recoge las experiencias que han vivido usuarios del prototipo de Oculus Rift que permiten avizorar un mundo extraordinario de oportunidades. Los orígenes de los ambientes de realidad virtual pueden remontarse al siglo XIX a través de murales panorámicos 360°, pasando por simuladores de vehículos y de vuelos, pero los primeros VR headset fueron desarrollados a finales de los 60. Lo disruptivo de esta tecnología hoy en día, es que se han juntado muchas tendencias en una sola época: la afición creciente  a los videojuegos, el acceso abierto a desarrollar contenidos de manera colaborativa, la conectividad global a través de internet y la movilidad a través de dispositivos portátiles que poseen capacidades de procesamiento cada vez mayores.

Hacia el ‘homo technologicus’

Hacia el ‘homo technologicus’ | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"El prestigioso ensayista norteamericano Nicholas Carr  sostiene que la automatización en la que nos hallamos inmersos conduce, además, a una sociedad con médicos de atención primaria que emplean entre un 25% y un 55% de su tiempo mirando a la pantalla en vez de prestar atención a la narración del paciente; a arquitectos que utilizan plantillas que propician uniformidad urbanística; y a financieros que delegan operaciones en la máquina que, cuando falla, pasa factura.

Carr, que rechaza ser calificado de tecnófobo, considera que el problema es que las máquinas están diseñadas por tecnólogos que solo están preocupados por saber hasta dónde es capaz de llegar la máquina, y no de qué modo puede ésta expandir nuestras capacidades. “Las innovaciones tecnológicas no se pueden parar. Pero podemos pedir que se designen dando prioridad al ser humano, ayudándonos a tener una vida plena en vez de apoderarse de nuestras capacidades”.
