Virtual Reality (VR) is the technology that allows a viewer to be completely immersed in a computer generated, 360º environment. Instead of augmenting the viewer’s world, virtual reality replaces the viewer’s entire surroundings, usually via a headset. The environment can also be stereoscopic, enhancing the immersive experience.
The benefit of VR is complete engagement of the viewer. It is an excellent choice for training, video games, and any application that requires complete immersion of the audience.
Ignite has worked on projects that take advantage of the new Oculus Go, a completely wireless VR headset at a consumer price point. This headset, and many others that are emerging at this price point, have made the leap to VR affordable and practical for countless applications.
