Virtual Reality Is More Than Reality

655 words - 3 pages

The science of Virtual Reality has stated its presence in the media
and now it is turning the eyes to see the new generation of games and
3D application.

However, like the Art in the beginning of our modern society it needs
to become much more matured than it has proven until now. The types of
maturity that I want to talk about are the technology and its use. The
technology that we have can be better used in the Virtual Reality
fields, as well as the Virtual Reality can be better used as it is
used today.

In the old type of Virtual Reality, the scientist or the user was
focusing more on the ideal image of the real world. Therefore, VR was
more like a reflection of the real world or it was intend to be like
that. This was in the beginnings! At that time, the technology and the
devices were ...view middle of the document...

After improving the technique,
they shifted to more sophisticated techniques in which the outcome was
not so much close to the real world but to other aspects of the
imagination.

The Virtual Reality evolution seems close to the idea presented above.
We have now a good technique, and we have gained the technologies to
support a good environment for Virtual Reality. What we need is a
better usage than we have in our days. Which are: simulations, games
and small virtual communities. However, is this all that we can get
from this field? Is this all that Virtual Reality has to offer us? I
don't think so.

I think that it is about time to make research on new types of virtual
realities than it was done so far. New types of features that can feed
our imagination, feelings and senses much more than we can conceive in
real world. These new features does not have to deal with the typical
constrains from the real world, but to bring more content. To add more
feelings, more interactions, more information and other things that we
want to communicate or express but we are "cursed" not to have them
because of some physical restrictions from the real world. Things like
flying, going underground, walking on water could be examples of this
kind but not only. My point in this paper is to suggest to stop
thinking that Virtual Reality is mapping 100% the real world. Lets try
to shift a little and to start thinking that Virtual Reality is more
like a new "reality" that you are immersing in and it has it's own
rules.

Into a society that is using the internet, a society that needs more
information faster and better, the Virtual Reality will become the
immediate choice. Nevertheless, to be ready to achieve that, we need
to define new rules, and among the rules that we wanted, one should
state: "Virtual Reality is Not Real Reality!"
