Oculus Rift

What is the Oculus Rift?

Rift is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Whether you’re stepping into your favorite game, watching an immersive VR movie, jumping to a destination on the other side of the world, or just spending time with friends in VR, you’ll feel like you’re really there.

This device projects a 180 ̊ FOV in front of the wearer. It has motion sensors in the front of the headset allowing wearers to control their in game character’s view. This works by wires that feed into the PC’s core video drivers, distributing the view in-game into the headset splitting it into two separate screens for each eye.

What is it fulfilling?

This is fulfilling many gamers need to be “immersed” in whatever game that they are currently playing. This is also fulfilling the need to see an amazing world in a game or a TV show; it will allow you to feel as though you are really in the world. On top of both of those things, it also allows people to train in whatever career they choose.

How can this work in businesses?

People are already using this to effectively cut out travel almost completely. It also allows companies to view a building that is currently under construction before completion. It would allow schools that have children out of school to never have to reteach what they did the day before.

What about humans?

It can allow people who cannot walk to feel as though they are walking again. It can be used to train surgeons. Also people who want to relive a certain era of time can do that very easily.

How long will it last?

This will probably last for 10 more years. The reason why is because they might make another kind of virtual reality glasses or something like that. They will one with less cables and probably will make it lighter.
