Telexistence – Where Virtual Reality Meets Robotics

Sometimes it takes a while before a technology goes mainstream. One prerequisite is a name that conveys what the technology does while sounding good on a boardroom whiteboard. For example, the word “telexistence” seems to describe being able to exist in a particular place remotely. It’s an idea we wrote about four years ago in […]

VR in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction

We recently discussed how both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) have disappeared from Gartner’s Hype Cycle, yet wide-scale enterprise implementations seem to be lacking. Sure, we’re seeing some interesting use cases pop up like data visualization or drug discovery. But VR needs more than nifty use cases, it needs some real traction. There’s always […]

10 Virtual Reality Applications for Mental Health

In yesterday’s article, we talked about how virtual reality (VR) simulations can be effective in helping surgeons perform preoperative planning because they immerse the user in such a way that the brain makes new connections as it learns.

A company called Rethink Robotics proposed that we turn the lights back on, and allow their robots to work alongside […]

9 Virtual Reality Startups Taking VR Mainstream

The state of virtual reality (VR) seems to be in a state of confusion at the moment. When we first tried VR, we were simply blown away by the whole experience. Surely a VR headset will become a common fixture in living rooms like the television or the three-foot ceramic bong. Alas, things seem to […]

Unity Technologies – The World’s Leading Game Engine

When you first step into a virtual reality (VR) experience, one of the most interesting things is the ability to look around in a virtual world interactively. When a video game character is standing in front of you, peering around them to check out their backpack will elicit a giggle and a feeling of thrill […]
