Virtual Reality, this time…

I’m trying to understand how VR works and how is build, now it’s easier to have and to make, so maybe this time it will stay and become part of our daily lives. But, it’s hard to tell though.

What are the advantages? Less space needed, wow feeling. Why now? I remember my first VR experience, it was like 20 years ago. It’s wasn’t that good but still at the time was amazing. It was sleeping for decades and now it’s finally waking up, why? Innovation is not just the fact of doing something awesome just because you can. Is it?

Probably it’s because now technology is cheaper and almost everybody has a smartphone and that makes VR a lot more accessible. I know the experience is amazing, but we really have to find a proper use for that, make it useful for life. Technology can my incredibly tough and complicated, there is a lot of great minds and tons of work behind it, but then you have the purpose, and sometimes we can’t find it and regular users just enjoy the experience like pure entertainment, but it has to leave us something or help us to become a part of our lives. And finding those porpuses is probably as hard as developing the ideas that make technology move forward.

We’ll see what happens. I think is going to be interesting, that’s for sure, there’s a  whole new “reality” to explore and build.
