What are the main types of Virtual Reality?

There are three main types of virtual reality. These are non-immersive, semi-immersive and fully-immersive simulations each providing a slightly different experience.

Non-immersive simulations are often overlooked for VR Adelaide as they are already so common in everyday life. These are where a computer generated environment is created but users are able to keep control and stay aware of their physical environment. A good example of this would be computer gaming, where whole worlds have been created but the player only views them on a screen and manipulates them using a control stick, mouse or keyboard.

Semi-immersive virtual reality Adelaide provide users with a partially virtual environment. As such, they get the perception of being in a different reality, but also remain connected to their physical surroundings. The realism comes through 3D graphics, known as vertical reality depth, with more detailed graphics resulting in a more immersive feeling. It is often used for an educational experience or training purposes.

Fully-immersive simulations provide the most realistic VR, with sight and sound adding to overall sensation. To experience and interact with fully-immersive virtual reality Adelaide, you need VR glasses or a head mount display (HMD). These provide high-resolution and wide field of view. The display is typically split between the eyes, creating a 3D effect. This type of virtual reality experience has been adapted for games and offering hours of entertainment and fun. However, there is wide potential use in other industries.

Which industries use VR?

As you can see from the above, VR is more than having fun playing games. Multiple Adelaide industries will be able to benefit from a virtual reality experience. This includes the hospitality industry with Adelaide Gaol or the South Austria Museum using the technology to conduct virtual tours as a sample to increase visitors or as a paid experience from anywhere in the world. In hotels guests can see where they will be staying and select the best room based on a VR tour.

Another key industry where VR can play a big role in Adelaide is construction. Virtual reality can make it easier to include every stakeholder in a project from early on in the design process. Architects can create 3D renders that builders, designers, investors and buyers can explore before the construction phase begins. Contractors can spot costly issues early on in the build process, designers can get started on their work, even being able to see what finished versions will look like and select colour schemes – which can be a big help when trying to attract investment and buyers.

How can VR help businesses?

If you think about virtual reality Adelaide as a business tool rather than a fun way of playing games then it opens up a lot of doors and possibilities. There are multiple ways that virtual reality is ready to be used for business. For example, property marketing is using virtual walkthroughs of homes in Kilburn, offices in the Pirie Tower and major developments such as those on Kangaroo Island. A VR experience can help clients envisage a new build, remodel or extension.

Virtual reality Adelaide can also help in tourism and leisure businesses. Imagine a boutique hotel on the North Brighton beachside that allows guests the chance to explore and experience the hotel before booking their visit. They can check out the rooms on offer, look around the lobby and leisure facilities, and even enjoy the view from the window.

Virtual reality can also be used for data management, allowing complex financial data to be displayed in a more easy to understand way. As VR tools get more sophisticated they can select information to display in new ways to allow full interaction with data in more effective ways that save time and improve results.

There is potential in recruitment too, with virtual interviews for remote positions set up to encourage a more flowing and less tense interview environment. It can also be used to walk candidates through relevant case studies. The same applies to training, with virtual reality scenarios being capable of replicating real world situations in realistic ways. For example, you could set up an experience to search for a lost child at the Adelaide Oval to train security staff.

Perhaps the most exciting use of virtual reality Adelaide is in customer experiences. Businesses can use virtual reality to sell their goods and services to the world. Using VR, businesses can create virtual showrooms so customers can experience their products, you can allow virtual ‘test drives’ and even use virtual staff to make sales at all hours of the day and night. With more commerce-focused technology hitting the shelves all the time, expect this to become a more common way to sell in the future.

What are the disadvantages of VR?

VR does have a few notable disadvantages for users, such as the risk of dizziness and nausea when inhabiting the virtual environment. There are also concerns that too much time spent in virtual reality can damage eyesight. Some of the headsets used to enter virtual environments are also quite heavy and uncomfortable to wear.
