What is virtual reality?

At its most basic level, virtual reality is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment and virtual experiences. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR places the user inside the experience rather than just viewing a screen in front of them. So, rather than just seeing a picture of a new development in Manly, VR Sydney allows them to experience it as if they were actually there.

In order to achieve this level of full immersion, VR aims to simulate as many sense as possible, including vision, touch, sounds and even smells (although some of these are only in the developmental stage right now). The main way of interacting right now is through a VR headset. Pioneering technology such as sensory gloves may are not too far away but is more aimed at games than business VR in Australia at this stage.

Virtual reality differs from augmented reality in that it offers a unique immersive experience. With AR you still have one foot in the real world, with images overlaying the real time environment. In VR, the entire environment is created for you. So, rather than seeing how a piece of furniture or colour scheme might look in your Bankstown apartment, you can virtually step inside and look around a property from anywhere in the world. And you can alter virtual experiences to consider the time of day, seasons or even weather to get a clearer picture of the finished project.

This has major applications in the worlds of construction and real estate in Sydney. Imagine being able to show investors inside a new virtual Milsons point shopping development at the conceptual stage. Or being able to sell new homes in Bondi off plan using nothing more than a virtual reality tour. And a virtual tour that clients can return to as many times as they like. It’s an effective way to make emotional connections while reducing workload and the need for physical travel.

What software is used for virtual reality?

There is a big choice of Sydney virtual reality software on the market. VR visualisation software allows you to create experiences that users can interact and communicate with in real time. Virtual reality content management systems allow businesses to collect, store and analyse content in a centralised location.

The latest software kits provide the necessary base to design, build and test an immersive virtual reality experience, and are the building blocks of any basic virtual reality world. There are also game engines, social platforms and training simulators that use virtual reality software.

What does a virtual reality headset do?

A VR headset is a head-mounted device that provides the virtual reality experience for the wearer. Headsets are widely used by players of video games but are also used in other applications, including simulators and trainers. They are the main apparatus through which the virtual reality experience is provided to the user. As well as dedicated virtual reality headsets there are also apps in smartphones that can be utilised to provide a more basic but still effective immersive VR experience.

Hololens 2 is an AR system, with AR glasses differing from virtual reality headsets in one key way.

Augmented reality glasses, meanwhile, are see-through and mean that people can see both the real world and the virtual landscape.

Yes. The Meta Quest 2 is leading the VR world with its immersive gaming and virtual experience opportunities. Meta’s also working on a high-end VR headset, under the codename “Project Cambria”. This headset will overtake the Quest in terms of its capabilities and will be more suitable for workers who could even replace their laptop or PC with this interactive hardware.

Google began its VR shutdown in 2019. In its statement, Google claimed there was difficulty encouraging consumers to use their phones for VR, and this meant limited access to apps. The company also said they hadn’t benefited from the reach or adoption among consumers or developers that they’d hoped for. It’s around this time they also open-sourced their Cardboard project.

Is mixed reality the future of AR & VR?

Yes. Mixed reality takes the best features of AR and VR and blends them into an incredible user experience. Users can interact with the physical and virtual world seamlessly, with MR replicating their natural behaviour and changes in perspectives. This goes beyond the traditional approaches of VR and AR, which place users within a space or overlay the physical world with additional information.

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.

What is the difference between AR and VR?

Although augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are similar in their concept, they have a few notable differences. AR requires a real-world environment to function, whereas VR creates a virtual world. AR allows users to manipulate real-world surroundings, but VR can’t do this. VR uses specialised hardware such as headsets, while AR doesn’t.

What is the price of VR?

Prices for virtual reality vary dramatically depending on the type of virtual reality hardware used. Off-the-shelf virtual reality headsets currently cost anywhere from $400 to $1,000 for a standard VR setup.

Virtual reality was initially conceived in 1968 by Ivan Sutherland and Bob Sproull. Together, they created a head-mounted virtual reality display known as the Sword of Damocles that was directly connected to a computer. It was a cumbersome device that was suspended from a ceiling, which is where the name came from.

What is the future of virtual reality?

The future of virtual reality looks very promising thanks to further innovations and technology associated with virtual worlds.
