Compared to augmented/mixed reality, virtual reality is more immersive and better suited to put the user into a global environment.
There are several types of headsets for different uses of virtual reality.
Virtual tours in 360°
Interactions with a 3D model
Placement of 3D objects
Android & Unity 3D
Headsets connected to a PC or console for gamers or complex simulations.
Stand-alone headsets for viewing 360° movies or simple 3D environments.
Cardboard" type headsets that can integrate all types of smartphones for a first experimentation of V.R
Tourism and Heritage
In order to give tourists a taste of the "things to see", tourist offices are increasingly using VR helmets. They allow to show in 360° the emblematic places of a destination but also reconstitutions of a district or a moment for example.
Engineers use virtual reality to design new parts or to simulate changes in flow management. Parts of the factory are reproduced in 3D and visible in a helmet, allowing them to carry out tests without impacting the production lines.
Formations & company visits
In training and especially in professional training, the VR helmet is becoming an essential tool. By simulating risky situations in a work environment, the user prepares for possible accidents or stressful situations. This experience allows training without taking risks and without mobilizing a work space.
To make your company or a tourist destination known at a trade show, the 360° views exposed in VR helmets are very effective. They allow the user to be projected somewhere and give him the feeling of being on there.
