VR Glasses — The Future?
Are VR glasses—you know—the type Iron Man (or is it Spider-Man now?) wears, the future?
It’s pretty incredible to think that the technology that used to be reserved for sci-fi and action thriller movies is now potentially on the horizon to becoming real.
The increasing talk these days about the Metaverse, Oculus, and the like, are all a part of the greater conversation surrounding this exciting new technology and potential.
By now, you’ve probably heard of Oculus or even have had a chance to interact with it. Mark Zuckerberg is truly “betting the farm” on the Metaverse and spending tens of billions of dollars on developing something that he believes (and has tens of billions of reasons to hope) will become ingrained into our everyday lives.
In fact, he’s recently come out and said that they’re in the middle of a “big step forward” towards realism and believes it won't be long until they have scenes with “perfect fidelity.”
If and when the Metaverse is at this point of “perfect fidelity,” it makes sense that one of these companies, whether it be Meta, Apple, or another player, will also make significant strides in the efficiency of the hardware itself.
That’s where the potential for these VR glasses comes in. It’s inconceivable to think that 20 years from now, the hardware used to facilitate the Metaverse and its interactions will remain as big and clunky as Oculus.
It makes sense that some form of VR glasses will be introduced, at that point, with “Iron Man-like capabilities.”
If Mark Zuckerberg has it his way, much of our daily lives will be consumed by the Metaverse. Meaning, once these VR glasses are as common to us as our phones are today, everything from our communication our learning, to our professional work will be integrated into it, in essence making these glasses a gateway into “digital lives.”
Needless to say, it’s an exciting time in the tech world and we’re looking forward to seeing how this new technology unfolds and becomes integrated into our lives.
At Big Pixel, we’re always keeping a pulse on the latest and greatest advancements in technology. It’s our job and our duty to our clients to not just develop software that creates value today, but will continue to do so long into the future.
