Bob Iger of Walt Disney Co. chose to acquire Augmented Reality for their headsets rather than Virtual reality. The chief executive shows not having interest in theme park visitors strap headsets from virtual reality since it blocks out the view and abode them inside a digital world. These are some of Disney’s minor rivals who have switched to virtual reality experience for an affordable practice to spice up rides. Knott’s Berry Farm Seaworld Six Flags On the other hand, Bob Iger said that headsets which destroy reality would be counterfeit in the stability of parks. For that, he even discouraged his team on thinking about the idea. Bob Iger’s topics at the USC Marshall and Annenberg affair in Santa Monica On Thursday: The probability of launching high technology augmented reality captivations. Devices that will mix the real and digital worlds but will still involve a headgear. A device that enables one to hold a lightsaber and duel with a stormtrooper. A device that would get lighter and much comfortable someday. He will expressively be referring to a probable partnership with Magic Leap, the augmented reality device maker. His talk was brief and contains limited but precise details. People would always […]
Obtaining a preview of something is highly useful and enables us to get a clearer picture of what we can expect. For example, when we’re travelling to a city or country where we’ve never been before, we might look up Google Maps or Street View to see just what the location looks like. When we’re spending large amounts of money on renovating our homes, it would be nice to have a very clear idea of how the living space will look post-renovation. Virtual reality allows us to leave our imaginations aside and see a comprehensive preview of how our homes will look after a redesign. It is worth making a distinction between virtual reality and augmented reality; the latter allows us to mix realism with virtuality and distinguish between the two, while the former is a whole new world where the lines of reality and virtuality are blurred. It is no surprise that virtual reality is becoming so widely used in interior design when it can give us such a clear vision of the results of a home renovation. There is just too much expense and effort invested in renovation for you to make do with a living space that […]
Virtual Reality industry is funny. There’s a lot of hype and excitement, yet real case studies that have been revealed and swept the nation haven’t arrived. There has not been a “killer app” and not everyone own a VR headset yet. But on another hand, the sales numbers of the virtual reality devices are increasing. Superdata came out with stats for 2016. While sales of hi-tech power duo HTC Vive and Oculus Rift were ok, the big winner among the group is Samsung Gear VR. Google Daydream haven’t hit the markets yet and so the sales numbers aren’t exactly showing in where it’s going to be situated next year. Also, Playstation VR had a great performance in sales. The results even surprised the company itself. By now they already have about million PSVR devices in households. Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Global CEO, Andrew House said that the company has managed to sell 915,000 units in 4 months since official release. Right off the bat, Sony did actually have quite a bit of advantage that played in their favor. For instance, the price difference from HTC and Oculus is substantial, but there are two other factors as well. One, PlayStation […]
