Get all the latest news and advancements in Virtual Reality.

How Virtual Reality Will Change Our Lives
The present has finally caught up to the future when it comes to Virtual Reality. 3D computer simulations that transport people's consciousness into a different world have long been just figments of imagination within a storybook or a movie screen, but now, with the release of several virtual reality systems...
Now that it’s becoming more mainstream how are businesses taking advantage of virtual reality?
For many years virtual reality had remained strictly in the domain of science fiction. But, like many other technologies which we could only imagine in the past, it would appear that its time has finally arrived. But what is virtual reality, and why has it now moved into the mainstream? To...
A Look Back at Virtual Reality 2
The future of Virtual Reality has certainly never looked more exciting. Its technology has evolved beyond what anyone could have predicted a few years ago, and the applications that have been found in a huge number of industries and fields, though impressive, might be just the beginning. As we’re looking...
Virtual Reality The Most Exciting Applications
More than a year has passed since Oculus released its first headset, the Rift, commercially. And we haven't seen it fundamentally change the gaming industry - it might be the headset's price tag (not to mention the price of the computer it needs) to blame for that. Yet the...
Technology Advancements to Expect in 2017
All throughout 2016, we experienced a high amount of disruption in technology, especially for the world that has become more digitized. It's easy to see how 2016 showed us a little glimpse of what's to come this year such as AI and 3D printing. But, to expand our future,...

New glasses use mini-laser to project images directly onto retina
A Japanese company called QD Laser in collaboration with the University of Tokyo has developed a pair of glasses that come with a tiny camera that captures data and a laser that prints imagery from the camera directly onto the retina. The glasses are still in the prototype stage but...
The meaning of life in a world without work
Most jobs that exist today might disappear within decades. As artificial intelligence outperforms humans in more and more tasks, it will replace humans in more and more jobs. Many new professions are likely to appear: virtual-world designers, for example. But such professions will probably require more creativity and flexibility, and it is unclear whether 40-year-old unemployed taxi drivers or insurance agents will be able to reinvent themselves as virtual-world designers (try to imagine a virtual world created by an insurance agent!). And even if the ex-insurance agent somehow makes the transition into a virtual-world designer, the pace of progress is such that within another decade he might have to reinvent himself yet again. The crucial problem isn’t creating new jobs. The crucial problem is creating new jobs that humans perform better than algorithms. Consequently, by 2050 a new class of people might emerge – the useless class. People who are not just unemployed, but unemployable. The same technology that renders humans useless might also make it feasible to feed and support the unemployable masses through some scheme of universal basic income. The real problem will then be to keep the masses occupied and content. People must engage in purposeful activities, or they go crazy. So what will the useless class do all day? By 2050 a new class of people might emerge – the useless class. People who are not just unemployed, but unemployable One answer might be computer games. Economically redundant people might spend increasing amounts of time within 3D virtual reality worlds, which would provide them with far more excitement and emotional engagement than the “real world” outside. This, in fact, is a very old solution. For thousands of years, billions of people have found meaning in playing virtual reality games. In the past, we have called these virtual reality games “religions”. What is a religion if not a big virtual reality game played by millions of people together? Religions such as Islam and Christianity invent imaginary laws, such as “don’t eat pork”, “repeat the same prayers a set number of times each day”, “don’t have sex with somebody from your own gender” and so forth. These laws exist only in the human imagination. No natural law requires the repetition of magical formulas, and no natural law forbids homosexuality or eating pork. Muslims and Christians go through life trying to gain points in their favorite virtual reality game. If you pray every day, you get points. If you forget to pray, you lose points. If by the end of your life you gain enough points, then after you die you go to the next level of the game (aka heaven)
