Just like the robots I talked about yesterday probably becoming the next big thing to impact our society, I think virtual reality is going to be another thing that will make a big change to our lives. It is already starting to emerge with Google cardboard and Oculus Rift, but I think that there will be more practical uses for it in the future and not just be for fun and games.
A Sort of Virtual Reality
One of the newer apps that I have been playing around with that got my attention is one that allows you to place certain things in pictures to allow you to see how it looks. This is especially handy if you are trying to decide if you want to go through with a certain project of some sort or not.
I recently used this app to “virtually” change my back yard around and see what I thought about it. I have been debating whether or not to clear out some old pine trees in my lawn and replace them with something newer and brighter. So instead of taking the risk of not liking my decision, you can upload a picture and add in whatever you are thinking and decide this way which is exactly what I did.
After loving what I saw, I followed my parents footsteps and hired a company found here for tree service Tulsa and showed them exactly what I wanted done to my lawn and trees.
Instead of trying to act like I knew what I was talking about and try to explain what I wanted done, I simply pulled up the app and let it do the explaining for me. They knew exactly what to do and began pruning trees down to make them look like what I pulled up on my phone. Because of this app, I avoided the high tree removal cost because I did not like what I saw and could see exactly how bare and boring my yard was going to look.
So even though I don’t really consider this a form of “virtual reality,” I do think that these sort of virtual simulators is some of the most useful technology that is available to us today and will only be gaining popularity as time goes on.
