The Surge of Virtual Reality Applications | By Octagon Studio
With Virtual Reality technology?s foothold getting stronger over time, its potential providing ?detour? to live our daily lives gradually becomes more and more visible. Through its capacity of easy adaptability in varied fields and industries, Virtual Reality seems to be ready to replace existing technologies as common tools in our daily lives. With the recent news, reports, and launches regarding upgrades, investments, and deals on VR technologies, it shows how Virtual Reality applications keep on expanding over time.
As has been reported from conferences and exhibitions around the world such as Consumer Electronic Show, Augmented World Expo, and British Educational Training and Technology Show, Virtual Reality related topics and products receive festive receptions. These events become warm host for Virtual Reality companies to launch or preview their lineups. This indicates that Virtual Reality has been widely regarded and its existence is getting more and more acknowledged. Thus, along with worldwide recognition, Virtual Reality has been stealing public attention and come up with the idea of ?adaptable? to any kinds of activities. The following are conceivable Virtual Reality applications which appears to be future solutions.
VIRTUAL REALITY APPLICATIONS ON MEDICAL SCIENCE
Virtual Reality applications could encompass rehabilitation, relaxation, simulation for the sake of medical study, and many more. As commonly known that medical studies cost us millions, utilizing VR comes as one of the ways to ease the expenses from the early stage of medical science. Some universities have been interweaving VR with medical study as one of learning methods. For instance, the University of Southern California Institute established The Medical Virtual Reality (MedVR) as their specific department dealing with the development of medical studies utilizing VR technology. For further information, go to their website at medvr.ict.usc.edu.
Several healthcare companies already offer VR on their services. Take a look at Firsthand Technologies? VR pain control research. This research intends to treat patients with various ailments by manipulating the brain of the suffering through VR?s immersive contents to reduce pain. Go visit their website to see the full information at firsthand.com.
VIRTUAL REALITY APPLICATIONS ON EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Holding a significant feature as a simulation generator, one of Virtual Reality applications really supports education and training fields. As has been mentioned on previous section about VR and medical study, other subjects also beg for VR support on making learning way more efficient and sophisticated. VR technology is able to provide ?immersive? modeler for learners to dig the subjects before actually deal with it practically. For instance, Stanford University has a program called Virtual Human Interaction Lab which has been noticed by a wide range of scholars. And if you?re interested in going to Australia to study, Deakin University offers you classes that are integrated with VR technologies.
These Virtual Reality applications on high level of education system shows that VR has become one of the most reliable and promising methods. As the technology continues to evolve, it?s possible that next time you enroll in a class, you?ll find many VR headset hanging on the wall of a class room.

021115-N-5862D-001 Aboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola (Nov. 15, 2002) — Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Tim Sudduth, from Vashowish, Wash., demonstrates the Virtual Reality (VR) parachute trainer, while Aviation Survival Equipmentman 1st Class, Jackie Hilles, from Ekland, Penn., controls the program from a computer console. Students wear the VR glasses while suspended in a parachute harness, and then learn to control their movements through a series of computer-simulated scenarios. The computer receives signals from the student as they pull on the risers that control the parachute. The VR trainer also teaches aircrew personnel how to handle a parachute in different weather conditions and during possible equipment malfunctions.
