What are the Main Uses of Virtual Reality?
What is virtual reality? According to a blog on the website “newgenapps,”Virtual reality (VR) is a way to create a computer-generated environment that immerses the user into a virtual world.” To use, someone needs to have a headset hooked up to a computer. How is VR used today? According to Alayna Mansell, a Digital Marketing Specialist, the five main uses of virtual reality (VR) include: military, sports/fitness, mental health, medical training, and education.
The military in the U.K. and the U.S. use VR in army navy and airforce. The U.K. and the U.S. have both started using virtual reality in their training as it allows them to be able to train in different situations like being attacked by other people in a war, or flying an airplane, or even throwing a bomb.
VR is revolutionising the sports industry for both players and viewers. It is helpful for the players because it can get them in shape.
VR helps the viewer’s experience because they can watch the game they want to watch on the headset. This is helpful because if you did not get a ticket to the game you want to watch you can just watch it from your headset, it is also much cheaper then buying a ticket to a game.
VR changed fitness because you used to only go to the gym, but now you have another option you could play Virtual Reality. There are games like Box VR, Knockout League and more. Going to the gym is still better, but playing Virtual Reality Is more fun. The top sports that are benefiting from VR are
- American Football
It has also been used to treat anxiety, phobias, and depression. Virtual reality technology can provide a safe area for patients to come into contact with things they fear, while staying in a safe environment because they can’t get hurt in VR.
VR has become a primary method for treating post-traumatic stress. Using VR exposure therapy, which is a therapy that helps people calm down with visualization, a person enters a re-enactment of a traumatic event. It has also been used to treat anxiety, phobias and depression.
Medical and dental students will be able to train when they are in VR. For example they could perform a surgery or pulling out a tooth. This is good because if they mess up, it will not harm anybody. They are also able to practice as long as they want to.
Virtual reality has been helping in education for teaching and learning situations. Students are able to interact with each other within a three dimensional environment. This helps students with their social skills.
Students can also be taken on virtual field trips. For example, with VR, students can take tours of the solar system and go back in time to different eras.
Students with special needs, such as autism, are also using VR technology. Research has found VR can be a motivating platform to safely practice social skills for children. A company called Floreo has developed virtual reality scenarios that allow children to learn and practice skills such as pointing, making eye contact, and building social connections. Parents can also follow along and interact by using a linked table. This helps students with their social skills. The subjects VR help most in are
- Social Studies
In conclusion, VR is more than just gaming. VR is an inexpensive way to virtually travel to places that people are unable to visit. Doctors can train for surgery while using VR. Mentally ill people can use VR to calm them down. Military and educators can train soldiers and students with VR. Using VR is a great way to exercise too! I hope that many of you will use VR more often because VR has so many options!
