Tsunami VR has already had success in the applications of virtual reality in a business setting. Tsunami VR teamed up with an energy company to run a field trial to test the capabilities of virtual reality. Employees of the energy company used a HoloLens headset and were able to change out a pneumatic drill component. This process would usually take the employees over two hours to complete. With the help of the virtual reality software, they were able to make the change in only fifteen minutes time. Visit tsunamixr.com to know more.

One of the challenges that virtual reality is facing in society is the implementation in everyday use by the masses. The mobile industry has taken a stab at attempting to incorporate virtual reality into the everyday use of the mobile smart phone. One of the problems with this is the weight distribution. Mobile phones are not designed for virtual reality use and the inconsistencies are extremely noticeable. Another issue is the battery life of the phones. It cannot sustain the energy consumption of the VR hardware and software because it was not designed to do so. Follow Alex Hern on Linkedin.

According to virtual reality experts, the gaming industry needs to implement more virtual reality hardware and software. However, the games need to be original and not remake’s of already existing games.
