VIRTUAL REALITY: A CHANGE IN THE WAY WE LOOK AT THINGS

Did you ever think that the mobile phone that has become a part and parcel of your life was once rubbished away as something of no importance?

Just like everything that makes it big in the world, acceptance didn’t come easy to Virtual Reality aka VR. Well in the years of the ‘50s, it was hard to agree that there could possibly be something that could take to a whole new world by simply putting them on like glasses. The concept resurfaced in the ‘90s when a few people saw potential in it and worked on a game called the Virtual Boy. This turned out to more of a blow than boost to our emerging star. With that, the gates to Virtual Reality were closed.

As history has been, anything that holds promise to change the way things are looked at, Virtual Reality came back. And this time, it was here to stay. A company called Oculus Rift based itself around the whole concept of VR came in existence. Another few years down the line, Oculus was bought by Facebook. Now we don’t need to be a genius to know someone like Mark Zuckerberg would put his money only into something that stands in a bright future.

See zombies come to life, fight a troupe away, experience standing right next to the Tyrannosaurus Rex and let the ghosts scare you away, almost in real life. Give it another a few years and a wave of change can be expected to run our way in the gaming industry. In the words of Walt Disney, “You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality.” The dream of seeing a T-Rex isn’t a dream for long.
