The World of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality VR is moving ahead rapidly as the technology advances due to massive money flows from Venture Capital and Corporate Sponsors. Virtual Reality is rapidly merging with Simulator Technologies and Computer Video Games and it is coming to a living room near you or perhaps in your own home real soon.
What will virtual reality look like in the future? One can only guess however, it would be safe to say that it will include total immersion of the participant in a 3-D augmented training with holographic images and wave frequency interactions with the Bio-system of the individual or individuals who are participating.
Many technologies that will allow this to happen are presently converging at a rapid pace. Military technologies that control human emotion by inciting brain waves are now available. Research is being done into mapping the human brain and researchers are learning more and more each day through fMRI technologies.
Meanwhile, videogame companies and companies that operate simulators are also coming together. And some of the biggest names in personal technologies are building more robust platforms and computer systems to handle the complexity of the latest and greatest video games.
Virtual reality is here to stay and it may replace the legal recreational drugs, as the virtual-reality experience in your own living room will allow you to be anyone you’ve ever wanted to be an experience anything you’ve ever dreamed of. Eventually the lines between virtual reality and your actual life experience may become blurred, because the technology will be that convincing.
