Virtual reality (VR) has probably made it on to your radar screen in some way. Maybe you’ve only heard about it in bits and pieces, or maybe you’ve tried it yourself. Whatever the case, virtual reality feels like it could be the new generation of advanced technology.
We are only in the early stages when it comes to fleshing out the broader applications for VR, and where it ends up taking us is unimaginable. It is fascinating to think about where this kind of technology will take us in the next 100 years, and the innovative thinkers that will move us forward.
Another beauty of Virtual Reality? It isn’t just for kids. Spend a little time with this article to see a wonderful video on how it can help us revisit our memories.
One example of Virtual reality is : Doctors are actually showing what will be done with patient during surgery..
Your first instinct would probably be to tell them that they’re crazy. That they’re far too tall to be able to be inside of a human heart, that’s just insane. But then you’ll remember that technology is a thing. And that people are applying it in some really fascinating ways these days.
Next thing you know they’re bringing in a headset. They put it over your eyes and suddenly you’re staring at a human heart. The surgeon then shows you the issue, what they’ll be doing to fix it, and why. You’ll be able to walk through, first hand, what is and what will be happening to you or a loved one thanks to the Stanford Virtual Heart.
And how do you go about explaining what’s happening to the family members? How do the parents of the children born with heart defects even begin to try to understand an organ that doctors have spent years studying? Well, what about an interactive visual? It seems like the perfect home for our friend, virtual reality (VR).
We now have the ability to safely “be” anywhere or do anything that we’d like from our home, but do you think this will be a positive advancement for the human race?
Could it be possible that this technology will lead us all to become shut ins living in a virtual world on our couches, or will it actually inspire more people to get out there and have new real world experiences since they now have a better idea of what will be in store for them? And how will it effect those of us, like Leo and Laura, who for any variety of reasons don’t have the ability to go out into the world and physically have these experiences? For example, how would someone in a wheelchair feel about virtually walking through a city? Or climbing a mountain?
