Virtual Life

As i recall,the early ninties saw a sincere but unsuccessful attempt at virtual reality.Its reincarnation, aptly named, Immersion technology seeks to restart from a fresh vantage point.Utilizing stereoscopic vision, head tracking, and motion/gesture controls, the user is literally placed in a 3D virtual space. Looking in any direction is rewarded by the environment reacting to you…the user.This is not your dad’s VR.This new resource will create endless applications for movies, gaming, military, even reinventing online social interactions.Recent systems slated for release are Oculus Rift, Morphius Project and Samsung Gear VR, all part of the ever expanding wearables market.Where this leads is anyone’s guess but I am happy enough to be along for the ride.
