VR (Virtual Reality) is about to change the game. It’s been rising in popularity over the last few years and as designs and models have been refined, we are now face to face with the technology that is opening new doors for businesses all over the world.
What is VR?
VR itself refers to a three-dimensional, computer environment. In short, you aren’t just watching a screen. The devices are so complex that they account for our perception and cognition meaning the experience is ultra immersive.
Not just for entertainment
Most people in the know associate VR headsets with entertainment. It’s true, these devices offer an entirely new experience in terms of playing video games, watching films or viewing 360 degree photos and videos.
However, there’s a different side to VR headsets that is going to revolutionise how businesses function. Perhaps you need to view a new office building… rather than travelling to the location, you can take a preliminary look through virtual reality.
Alternatively, you can carry out tasks without actually being present – this is called telepresence. VR literally allows you to attend a meeting or conference without having to travel. It’s cost effective and still provides high quality interaction.
Training and education
The visuals of VR are able to trick our brains into thinking what we are looking at is real. That’s why it can be extremely helpful for training employees. It allows you to learn from interactions making it particularly useful for public speaking training.
Similarly, the headsets can be used for continued education. It will be increasingly easier to get staff to attend training sessions and courses as there’s likely to be a new sense of enthusiasm amongst employees to use the tech. Honing skills in management and communication has never been easier.
On top of that, there’s a particular use within manufacturing and production-driven business. VR means every aspect of a product, part, mechanism or process can be tested for performance and reliability under any condition. Businesses will be able to test products in an efficient, quick, cost effective and safe way.
The Samsung VR Headset
The Samsung VR Headset is great for carrying out tasks to help businesses. With a super AMOLED display, accelerome sensors, a 96 degree field of view, precise head-tracking and low latency, it’s a perfect choice of VR headset.
That’s not even taking into consideration that it’s 19 percent lighter than previous models and has a huge selection of content for you to utilise. It’s pretty simple. Pop your Samsung device into the headset and you’re all set up. It’s that easy. Foam cushioning and a touch pad also means it’s comfortable to wear and simple to use and operate.
Naturally, businesses that take advantage of the latest and greatest technology have a head start in their field. Here at ATS we understand that.
