Virtual reality starts taking shape and can be experience by the public at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
This is the industry’s biggest trade show that will unfold with blockbuster video games and the pledge of experiencing a new way of gaming, virtual reality included.
The most well-known developers in the industry, like Sony, Microsoft and Ubisoft prepare to launch new products that will use the emerging technology. Facebook, Google, Samsung and HTC have already chosen the virtual side of reality, with Facebook already owns the rights for Oculus Rift and Google is playing with virtual reality cardboard boxes.
The highest profile video game conference, namely the Electronic Entertainment Expo will offer the great public a good chance to take advantage of the new way of embracing technology. Virtual reality can be played directly in our living rooms and debates have already started to appear, saying this is one of the greatest inventions technology could have made.
A recent TED talk argues that virtual technology allows people to shed a different perspective on life, thus be able to dream and see beyond real life’s trials and tribulations.
Back to the conference, we will have 27 exhibitors that will showcase virtual reality items. If last year there were only 22 such participants, now the industry starts to take serious shape and come with better, faster, stronger and steadier virtual reality alternatives.
Also, the level of enthusiasm among the public of the conference is through the roof, as the show is sold out and it attracted 50 more exhibitors compared to last year.
Virtual reality is constructing a real shift in the tech industry, as officials from the greatest companies declare that this is the way we will interact with computers in the near future. Once you go virtual, you can never go back, because the life-sized experience will have you crave for more.
In a world where everything starts to be virtualized, from communication to books, to sex and so on, it sounds a bit scary. On the other hand, everything that is new scares us to the bone and makes some of us feel skeptical. How will we be able to make the difference and go on with our real lives, if the virtual offers everything we have been dreaming about?
This is for the future to reveal and by then, we have this great conference addressed to gamers that will definitely take the gaming experience to a completely new level.
