Have you ever wondered what it is like to be the quarterback in the super bowl? With this new reality, you will be able to see what the QB sees, feel the ball, see the turf, experience the stadium. Why this is so compelling is because you’ll be able to this reality from your living room sofa.
Football’s not your thing? Then perhaps you change the channel and explore the experience of a North Face climber or an Arctic Ocean sea captain. No? How about a helicopter pilot flying over the Grand Canyon?
If you are concerned about nausea, the technology has improved immensely. More sensors, better computers and just better quality camera production. Virtual reality is literally going to feel “real”.
So you say that you don’t have a grand or two sitting on the night side table waiting to be spent on VR. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. That’s where mobile technology kicks in. Companies like Lixar and others are starting to create really cool VR experiences that can be displayed through your own mobile phone. Imagine, you simply have to slip your phone into a cardboard camera that retails for $14.99 to have an immersive experience. Yes, the big guys definitely have more bells and whistles with the expensive models but for the rest of us who really want a taste without the cost, the future is literally in view.
VR is driven by Mobile … and Lixar is proud to be a player in this virtual experience.
