Just as in the past the computer was considered a life-changing invention, then we were all blown away by the XBOX and mobile phones, it’s time for yet another game changer: VR headsets.
Virtual reality is something we’ve dreamed of for years and it’s starting to become real, something that has a great future ahead.
Apart from the medical perspective, in which VR can help people treat a medical issue (be it psychological or physical) or implications in human sexuality, VR is the perfect improvement that can be made on games of all kinds.
Many companies like Microsoft or HTC, for example, are investing in it and trying to perfect it for future use. While it’s still in the early stages, you can already use it and see how it feels.
The goal now is to make it less expensive and affordable for all, even though at this point it’s quite costly to use it, and to make it look and feel better. At this moment in time computers, XBOXs, smartphones have much better graphics than VR sets, but in the future, it should adapt to work connected to all these things and take the experience to the next level.
People can already play games like Skyrim, for example, using VR, but at this moment while it is possible the graphics can’t hold a candle against the ones you get when playing without it.
But it is not just video games that have started using VR, another important industry has grown even more in popularity after starting to offer a VR experience. Popular online casinos now have VR-adapted platforms so that you can play online slots or casino games in the VR world.
In fact, online slots seem to be preferred over video games at this point, but who knows what will happen in a couple of years? Assuming that it will continue to evolve and become better and better, in a couple of years we should be seeing games that were designed specifically to work this way and that will succeed in fully immersing you in the game and will feel real.
If our imagination is a thing we can measure reality against, then we’re quite sure that VR’s future will be outstanding, possibly the best thing to happen to games throughout history.
While it might cost more to get all the equipment you need to use Virtual Reality tech, in the end, it will make you escape reality for a while completely, have you be more engaged in the game, build a better version of yourself inside a game, upgrade your real-life abilities, live out your fantasies and more. The possibilities are endless.
So, are you ready for the future of gaming?
