The artificial world, for the creation of which special technical devices are used, is called virtual reality. What is it – fashionable entertainment in the gaming industry and live casino or a necessity in modern realities?
The growing power of computer systems and digital techniques have raised technology to a fundamentally new level, allowing it to enter not only the entertainment industry market, but also to cover a wide range of new activity areas. To create a three-dimensional picture, a virtual reality helmet, glasses or entire VR rooms, and adapted content are used.
Perhaps this is the very first area where virtual reality has been used. Putting on a helmet, the player moved into the game and completely immersed himself in the computer’s world. Guests of casinos and live casinos in Canada, UK and other countries with VR helmets help have the opportunity to be present in real halls where the game is taking place. Cinema fans were able to experience 3D and even 5D cinema with all their senses. But virtual reality can do much more!
Architecture and urban planning
Architectural engineers are perhaps the pioneers in the use of the virtual world in their professional activities. Computer visualization of future buildings allows customers and contractors to travel across floors and rooms even before the foundation is erected.
The designers were given the opportunity to demonstrate their idea not in a flat form on the drawing, but to use a three-dimensional image, in which adjustments can be made already at the familiarization stage. And designers can try on their own some creative solutions for the interior, furnished rooms and find the optimal layout.
Schemes for the spatial development of the city, adherence to the principles of building, the division of sites and the arrangement of park zones, the competent management of space for a comfortable and safe residence of citizens – now this can be done with virtual reality technology.
Industry and mining
Virtual reality is used in the automotive industry for crash tests, the layout of components and assemblies, and the creation of interior ergonomics. With its help, power units of nuclear power plants, production stages are modeled, schedules and work plans are changed in accordance with the supply of raw materials and components.
Shipbuilding companies are one of the main users of VR systems. With their help, engineers determine the optimal layout of household communications, analyze the difficulties of installation work, virtually place equipment, and analyze the manufacturability of products.
Visual models with geoinformation data are also useful, they are indispensable in the development of deposits with minerals, modeling of deposits and wells, for geophysical analysis.
VR technologies in education are a new approach to the presentation and assimilation of scientific and methodological material in schools and universities. Students can work in unique experimental laboratories, observe historical events and even participate in them, visit space, go on a journey to anywhere in the world, build volumetric diagrams and conduct chemical experiments.
The participants of the VR system can be located in different cities and countries and interact with each other in the scientific field, together observe experiments and participate in developments.
Arts and public events
The VR system has not spared art either. Visualization schemes are in the service of museums – with their help you can visit closed museum halls, look at lost exhibits or monuments that have undergone reconstruction, and watch panoramic films about interesting historical eras.
Creation of installation masterpieces, visualization of dance art, the opportunity to visit famous and rare exhibitions organized in another part of the world – visual and sound perception is literally unlimited.
Massive VR events (sports, music, live online casinos, seminars) are a new word in organizing interesting events and implementing cultural programs. Innovative technologies remove restrictions on the number of visitors to a hall. Now, in a common visual space, a large number of people can listen to the same music, watch videos, visit Internet sites and play games at once.
Applications for virtual reality include the tourism industry. With its help, you can present in the most favorable light not only the famous and beloved by all cities and sights. But to acquaint travelers with yet unknown corners, which they did not even know about.
An imaginary guide will tell you about interesting geographical places and historical monuments, and guide you through the locations of impassable objects. This is a great way to run an advertising campaign and encourage tourists to visit a city or an entire country.
