Modern technology for virtual reality is designed to immerse users in a virtual world while also keeping them grounded in reality. With increased resolution, wider viewing angles, improved motion tracking, lower latency, and the integration of smartphone components in new headsets, the latest VR devices are more accessible than ever before. In the end, consumer interest in VR is growing again.

VR’s applications are now far beyond gaming and entertainment, with new immersive technologies for education and collaboration in the workplace. In addition to allowing students to participate in interactive media and build their own knowledge, VR enables students to interact with intricate systems such as robots and airplanes while being safe and avoiding the dangers of physical contact.

VR is a popular way to attend concerts live or through prerecorded video that can be viewed using the VR headset. This was particularly useful during the COVID-19 Pandemic, when travel restrictions and social distance prevented many people from attending live music events or visiting their friends. However, they were still capable of staying in touch through VR.

The latest VR technology goes one step further by adding touch capabilities, transforming the device into a holographic projection that can be felt and touched and even seen. This technology is likely to transform business meetings and eliminate the need to carry heavy binders with showroom materials. It can also enhance the quality of design critique, communication with clients, and quality control without misinterpretation.
