6 VR headsets that will take you straight to the future
Spielberg has made it very clear with Ready Player One what 2045 is going to look like. However, 2018 has loads to offer VR enthusiasts.
- What’s the future of virtual reality? Apart from Spielberg’s idea of being a physical part of a virtual game, XPRIZE is aiming to build robot avatars that let you see, hear, and feel by 2021.
- Can virtual reality work underwater? We’ve seen VR make gaming so much more fun. However, Ballast VR is taking the experience even further with their first aquatic virtual reality company.
- Are VFX and VR the future of cinema? That totally depends on the viewer. You can move the screen, change its size, and literally physically enjoy the cinematic adventure.
When you wear a VR headset, the world around you changes instantly. It’s as if someone transported you to a whole new fantasy world you’ve always wanted to see. Whether it’s playing games or watching a movie or just traveling in virtual space, this hyper-realistic world of technology is addictive for tech as well as non-tech enthusiasts.
