Even though it seems like virtual reality has been around for a few years now, some newer phones even have the ability to plug into a goggle rig allowing you to view virtual reality at any time.  In the 1980’s , virtual reality was used on projects for NASA and research into new forms of human-computer interactions.  Virtual reality was also popular throughout the 1990’s but the public lost interest due to a lack of advancements in the technology. Over the past few years, a new wave of interest in virtual reality has formed.

According to R&D Magazine, the new infatuation in the past few years has to do with the design of the first prototype of the Oculus Rift in 2010 created by next-gen video game developer Valve.  They introduced the low-persistence displays in 2013. This technology offered a lag free experience and smear resistant display for playing any virtual reality content.

With newer and better technology being released, virtual reality has been thrown out of the spotlight once again. As of recently, virtual reality has come out with better servers to play on and better resolutions, so the scenes look even more realistic than they once did.  As of recently, there was a program that was developed that let you see the world around you while also being able to draw in 3D and make your own creations in the real world through a VR set. This program was created by google; the programs name is Tilt Brush. If you would like to see Tilt Brush in action you may do so here. Tilt brush was released on April 5 of 2016 there also have been some advancements to . And Google also came out with a VR headset that has no cable attached to it so it doesn’t need a constant battery charge and you could move around more freely while moving around. And still in prototype is the omnidirectional movement device, which is a platform with special shoes so you can experience VR in a whole new way. This device allows you to feel like you are walking around in the simulation but you are standing in one place the whole time.

All the new devices that have been coming out, or are going to be coming out soon have taken VR to another level. Of all the new technology available these days this is the one that can hold the most potential for the future. New technologies can be tested on VR set to prevent the wasting of products that can be used for other things. It might also help solve some other environmental problems that humans have created to help future generations. There are infinite possibilities for the use of VR technology, many of which have yet to be discovered.
