Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!
I am sure we have all felt that way from time to time, well now, you really can.
Recently on a Trip to LA, I was fortunate enough to attend the Vision Summit 2016 and if I am being honest I now realise a couple of months later that I really would still be none the wiser about Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) if I hadn’t spent that intensive two days amongst the worlds most dynamic movers and shakers in the industry.
Of course I had heard about VR and had a vague idea about AR and to be honest it really annoyed me when I heard people saying if I hadn’t actually tried VR then I didn’t really understand.
The fact is it is true, and believe me that anyone who has tried VR will tell you the same.
What does VR & AR mean to you? Well, there are a selection of videos at Showstorm VR & AR that sum up really well where the technology is now and where it will be in a few years, I believe that in some way, it will effect everyone in the coming years.
So, last night I did get off the world, using the HTC VIVE I firstly I took an exhilarating trip to the moon on Apollo 11 and then after that I virtually became God in a Universe Sandbox two totally mind blowing out of this world experiences.
So, whether you choose to make worlds, or like one of my colleagues here, save worlds, VR is something you really should try soon!
