Cutting the Cord
Apple did it with their chargers and earphones, so VR consoles are following suit. One of the biggest hassles of playing VR games is that you’re not given the full range of movement. Oftentimes, you’re bound by the wires connecting your VR to your PC or console.
This year, however, standalone headsets will be taking the lead with their wireless consoles. 2019 will be the year you’ll find VR headsets that will let you move about freely in-game. Better get that gaming room sorted out before these headsets come out!
More Affordable VR
One of the biggest issues about VR technology is its accessibility. So many people see the value of VR, but not everyone can afford a VR headset or console. The solution to this may be the nimble little Oculus Quest. The Oculus Quest is a standalone headset created by Facebook. Unlike other VR consoles, the Oculus Quest is its own portable headset.
Companies Will Find New Uses for VR
VR used to be such a novelty that company usage wasn’t even a thing. However, as more and more companies saw the potential in VR, they are now opening up to the idea of using VR to accomplish daily tasks.
There’s a huge range of tasks that VR can help with. For retail employees, VR can simulate customer interactions to train them with handling irate customers. For sports instructors, VR can help them train athletes who are on the opposite side of the globe. Lastly, for educators, VR can make learning more fun, interesting, and immersive.
2019 looks to be an incredibly promising year for those who want to try out new VR technology!
