The Next New Thing

Virtual Reality – the next new media. This can include either holograms or special glasses that will visualize 3D like images. Virtual realities are beneficial in recreational gaming or getting over phobia like fears. A hologram is useful when shopping from clothes to cars. This is more than 3D and it is beyond the technology we have now. While a virtual reality that one would receive from putting on special glasses is easier to invent. This can also be the next type of gaming and will require more exercise than a Wii. Apart from gaming people who suffer from phobias can learn to cope with it by experiencing their fears from a low level to high. Languages can also be learned from virtual realities. As Rosetta Stone incorporates a microphone to practice speaking a virtual world can put you into a foreign language speaking society.

    I think it is great that we can utilize new technology for anything from getting over a fear to learning a new language. It makes you wonder, how much more technical progress is possible? Also, I love the idea of video games now promoting more physical activity and encouraging exercise. The Wii is not the only system that has this feature as Sony and Microsoft came out with similar platforms.

    Yes, this is definitely interesting and can be useful. I saw some time ago on TV some sort of new computer monitor that can somehow project onto a desk holograms of cars for example so you could get a real feel / walkaround of it before hitting the dealer.

    The opportunities that may arise from this technology is endless. I love the idea of having a virtual world in 3D, can you imagine using an advanced rosetta stone like program in which you visit another country. The people you meet in this virtual world will seem so real helping you learn a language faster, while learning about the culture and “visiting” a new place.
