With mature VR implementation, this technology should be able to change our lives. An obvious consequence is that we don’t need to travel for work, unless it’s absolutely necessary. Virtual Reality can be integrated with video conferencing for meetings and we will be able to inspect field conditions. Important details will be shown as VR elements, instead of written on a white board. We could re-read these details later in our computer or mobile devices.
VR devices also allow us to safely recover from various nasty injuries and medical issues. They can retrain our brain during the recovery process. VR will help to push various game-changing medical techs down the pipeline. Proper virtual reality content can retrain our synapses and re-ignite neuroplasticity. This could have a significant implication on how to treat people with debilitating injuries and chronic conditions.
Other than for gaming, virtual reality will also be used in movie theaters. Instead of using a large screen, these theaters will allow people to wear VR headgears. They will become fully immersed in the VR-optimized movies. With well-designed VR headgears, people would be comfortable to walk into a café and put on their VR gears. Different VR implementations will continue to crop up and people will be plugged in more easily.
