What is VR?

History

History of vr

19th century Panoramic paintings: VR technology started with the introduction of 360 panoramic paintings from the 19th century. These paintings filled the viewer’s entire field of vision making it an immersive scene.
1838 Stereoscopic photos and viewers: Charles Wheatstone demonstrated that viewing different two-dimensional (2D) images side by side through a stereoscope gave the user depth and immersion. The brain processes these two images from each eye into a single object of 3D. Later it was used for virtual tourism.
1930s Pygmalion’s Spectacles, a short story by Stanley G. Weinbaum presented an idea of a Google-based virtual reality world through Holographics, smell, taste, and touch making hi a true visionary of the field.
1960s Ivan Sutherland created the first VR Head Mounted Display with specialized software and motion control platforms which became standard for training.
1987 The name “Virtual Reality” was coined by Jaron Lanier, founder of Visual Programming Lab (VPL).
1993 Sega VR headset was announced for the Sega Genesis console at the Consumer Electronics Show. However, it was a huge flop for Sega because it did not go further from the prototype phase despite having four games developed for it. The prototype headgear had head tracking, stereo sound, and LCD screens
1995 The Nintendo Virtual boy (VR-32) marked the walkthrough of VR in the public realm. It was the first-ever portable console displaying true 3D graphics for a gaming console but it lacked software support and was uncomfortable.
1999 The Matrix, the Wachowski siblings’ film featured characters living in a simulated world depicting VR. It was a major cultural impact and introduced VR into the mainstream
21st century The boom of smartphones with high-density displays and 3D graphics capabilities has made a new generation of lightweight and practical VR devices possible.
The video game industry developed consumer VR unabated. Depth sensing cameras suites, motion controllers, and natural human interfaces are already in the market for daily human-computer interaction.
2014 Facebook bought Oculus VR and developing a VR chat room for the future.
2017 The burst of different VR devices in the commercial market.

Future

Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a replicated environment. Unlike traditional user interfaces, VR keeps the user inside an experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are submerged and able to interact with 3D worlds. By assumed many senses, such as vision, hearing, touch, even smell, the computer is transformed into a doorman to this artificial world. The only limits to real VR experiences are the availability of content and computer power. Virtual Reality’s most recognizable component is the head-mounted display (HMD).

Specification of Oculus Quest 2

The new product Oculus Quest 2, has the same primary features as the Previous Quest. It’s a self-contained VR headset that doesn’t need a gaming PC or any external tracking sensors. It uses four built-in cameras to let people move around in VR, and it ships with two Touch motion controllers and restricted controller-free hand tracking. The Quest 2 and original Quest share a game library, and both can be tied up to a gaming PC with a USB-C cable, letting users play more graphically intensive games that were once limited to the Rift.

Oculus Quest 2 has some key upgrades as well. It’s got a much higher-resolution screen and a faster processor and decreased weight, and a more comfortable, optional head strap accessory. As a disadvantage, it’s the first VR headset to require a Facebook account instead of a discrete Oculus account.

There aren’t many consumer-ready standalone headsets available in the US yet, so the Oculus Quest 2 doesn’t have a lot of direct competition. The Oculus Quest 2 release date is set for next October 13th; pre-orders start yesterday at $300.
