So what has been the largest trend that we have really been noticing the last two months at MediaJobs.com?
Why it’s virtual reality media content of course!
So we may be on the cusp of a paradigm shift of engagement and interactivity that will change the world. If you thought the internet was already changing things, imagine when all content will invade your senses virtually. The real world may start to pale in comparison. What do you do when your kids are talking about manually installing solar panels in the deserts of Africa or going through the stomach and intestines of a whale shark all while sitting in their school classroom?
Well this could be happening right now somewhere in the U.S. thanks to a company called zSpace, find out about them here.
How about when you decide to go to that trade show in Salt Lake City Utah and you get to the hotel and just want to relax; perhaps you’d enjoy taking a lazy virtual tour of a cozy quiet beach in the Grand Caymans from the comfort of your room. Maybe even a lovely evening with a very appealing and responsive Avatar. Take a look at this article on Marriot’s new Samsung powered VR experiences.
Let’s not forget about all those folks who just love a killer workout or finally trying to get ripped but can’t seem to get past that threshold. Why not have your trainer watch you from afar or review a workout and critique it later for a whole heck of a lot less than hiring a trainer at the gym. Why not even it have it analyzed by a professional you admire. The workout interface would even tell you as you do your exercises that you’re doing it wrong and show you where your problem points are. Yup the Virtual Personal trainer is here. See for yourself.
So really what are you going to do when machines can record your dreams and allow you to revisit them virtually after you’ve forgotten them. How about being able to download 3D objects that where in your dreams and have them 3D printed so you can keep it somewhere close. How are you going to face your parents and tell them you don’t go to a job anymore, you just sit on the porch and work remotely through Virtual Reality?
VR is here and it is not leaving, it is going to accelerate and gobble the world, are you ready?
