Signs That Virtual Reality Is on the Verge of Taking Off

Signs That Virtual Reality Is on the Verge of Taking Off | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Virtual reality, along with its potential, has been around for years.  While there were some apps that took advantage of its “wow” factor early in development by pointing us to the closest subway or restaurant through our smartphones, the rich applications have always required the use of a bulky pair of goggles.  These have not been lightweight goggles!  As researchers of education, we found them in university engineering labs but potential was never realized because of its cost and bulk."

James Austin's curator insight, March 24, 2015 9:42 PM

This really shows how the possibilities of virtual reality can be endless. now that more commercial companies are getting their hands on the VR technology. We could posably see some virtual reality movies where it could be like you are in the movie. These are only some commercial and everyday use however the advancements from here are endless.

The economy is slowly improving but the damage has been done, and Fall could bring more. Across the United States, nearly 15 million people are still receiving unemployment assistance as a result of Covid-19 and the associated government restrictions on the economy.
