In recent years, virtual reality has seen resurgence in popularity. This is likely due to the increasing demand for immersive content experiences, coupled with advances in VR hardware and software development tools.
Some of the latest exciting developments in VR includeAR (virtual reality area-routing) and mixed reality (VR blended with physical reality). Virtual reality is one of the most popular technologies in the world today. It has many different applications, but its main use is in gaming.
The first consumer version of VR headset, Sony's PlayStation VR (PSVR) launched late last year at a cost of around $400 — which was significantly cheaper than other headsets on the market. For more details about virtual reality click over here.
It uses a wireless DualShock 4 controller for interaction, and it has more limited functionality than the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Sony also has plans to release a new model of the PSVR that will include integrated audio, PlayStation cameras and a supersized form factor.
The push into VR headsets has opened up the market for AR—or augmented reality—headsets. Google recently announced an update to its Tango smartphone-based AR headset that integrates depth sensors and allows users to see 3D video and images in real time.
