Here is some of the coolest VR content as of 2018 as well as some innovative business applications that are sure to raise the bottom line.
The Future of VR Games
VR has a rich history in gaming. This history has contributed to some of the biggest developments in VR and has lead to some truly excellent content. One recent game that has caught the attention of the gaming community is Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. The game puts users right smack dab in the middle of the Rick and Morty universe. The game is compatible with VR headsets like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift and was published by Adult Swim Games. The game came at an interesting time as the award-winning show was having production difficulties. But the shows creator’s put personal difference aside opting to take the opportunity of breaking into the newly developed VR space.
VR iPhone and Android
One recent AR game available to iOS and android users is the new Walking Dead title, The Walking Dead: Our World. Unveiled just in time for this year’s Comic-con event in San Diego, had user’s defending themselves from zombie attacks all over the convention. Capitalizing on one of the strongest fans tv bases, the game allows players to fight the zombie hordes alongside such familiar characters as Daryl, Michonne and Rick. The Walking Dead creator’s will continue their venture into AR and VR as they announced the 2019 offering, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners.
The same VR glasses, VR headset’s, and VR goggles that are being used to game it up are also being used for business applications. Companies like Tsunami XR are bringing global communications solutions to industries with AR and VR. One of their primary offerings is Tsunami workspaces that allow for on-demand collaborations across any device. By creating a virtual workspace, Tsunami allows its clients from across the world to come together in an instant. Collaboration becomes a breeze with Tsunami workspaces and companies utilizing this software are saving huge amounts on business travel.
Prototyping and design are also benefitting from new VR technology. In production and manufacturing businesses, VR is allowing engineers and designers to inspect every aspect of a process, or mechanism before starting production. Testing performance and reliability can be done under any virtual condition at a quicker, cheaper, and safer rate. Rather than making full-scale prototypes, companies who have invested in up-front platforming cost can carry out their ideas virtually. Companies like Airbus and Boeing have done just that. Tsunami XR has developed Tsunami Studios to complete 3D rendering, animation, simulation and visualization solutions.
VR as an Industry Service
VR can bring previously unrealized savings to every branch and department of a company. Literally ever department from distribution to marketing to research and development. But for smaller companies unable to invest in the overhead costs associated with VR and initial coding cost will be able to use VR as a service.
