What's the Deal with Virtual Reality?

3 December 2019

By now, virtual reality (VR) has probably made it on to your radar screen in some way. Maybe you’ve only heard about it in bits and pieces, or maybe you’ve tried it yourself. Whatever the case, virtual reality feels like it could be the new generation of advanced technology.

So, what’s going on with virtual reality? How does it work? What impact is it having on your brain?

Though I have tried a virtual reality headset before, I realized I really didn’t know that much about it, or what is possible with this technology. I’d never really had virtual reality explained to me in a way I was able to understand.

So, I decided to look into it and found a great video from one of our favorite YouTube channels, The Good Stuff, that takes us into the world of virtual reality, exploring its history, psychology, and why it’s so darn fun!

So what do you think, would you give VR a try?

Now, you may have been thinking to yourself how isolating virtual reality seems. As fun as it is to watch your friend crawl around your living room with funny goggles on their face, wouldn’t VR be much more fun if more people could be involved and experiencing the same thing?

Luckily, I wasn’t the only one with this line of thought, and The Good Stuff created another great video in their series exploring VR that tackles the ultimate in virtual reality, creating a real life Holodeck.
