Virtual Technologies Are Transforming the Way We Live and Work

Virtual technologies like VR, augmented reality (AR), and virtualization allow users to interact in a computer-generated world that simulates the real world. They’re changing the way we work and live and work, from introducing new ways to tell stories and design environments to creating immersive experiences which make us feel that we’re living in an imaginary world.

Teachers are using VR technology to enhance access to educational resources and to create equal playing field for students living in remote or underdeveloped areas who might not otherwise have the same opportunities to their urban counterparts. It also allows students with commitments to work or family, to remain focused on their studies.

AR/VR is an economic engine which creates jobs in areas of hardware/software and content creation distribution and advertising as well as licensing/IP management. These industries are helping transform both the economies of the developed and developing world.

The rapid expansion of XR technology has also led to new ethical issues. As more people become acquainted with XR technologies, businesses are required to demonstrate their safety by testing and checking the technology on humans. VR’s increased immersion can have both cognitive and physiological effects, which developers should take into consideration in the initial stages.

Successful VR programs require careful project management to prevent scope creep and ensure a pleasant learning experience for all employees. With a strong leadership team and a group of SMEs who are committed, you can leverage the power of virtual reality to improve your training program and expand your business.
