The evolution of technology has given rise to develop new technologies on VR Gaming. The present generation is revolving around the new concept of virtual reality.
What is virtual reality?
The virtual reality is generally termed as near reality, but it usually refers to a specific type of reality. It described as three-dimensional computer generated environment. You are involved in world able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions. These environments are customized and generated by the computers used in various fields like VR gaming devices, training simulators, headsets etc.
Virtual reality deceives your brain into believing you are in a 3D world. The VR gaming box screens built as the stereoscopic display. It works by displaying two different angles of the scene to each eye, simulating depth.
Using ways to simulate depth parallax as farther objects to you seem to move slower, shading and techniques create an almost life like experience.
VR Gaming technology
The bio-sensing concept used to detect a person’s existence in a game. Small sensors embedded in controllers, suit or on body and record movements performed by the person in a 3D space. Those movements converted by a computer and activates a variety of responses within that space.
Humans have about a 180 degree FOV (Field of view) looking straight ahead, and 270 degrees with eye movement. This is an important feature in VR, you will be wearing the headset to involve into a virtual world.
The important aspect of virtual reality is movements and touching during the game. Moreover, the accelerometer used to detect three dimensional movement. With the gyroscope simultaneously used to detect angular movement followed by the magnetometer for position relative to the Earth. Holding game controllers have sensors attached to it as part of a driving game. Finally, these sensors record your gestures as part of this game, turning the steering wheel in a particular direction.
Moreover, these movements record again on computer and analyses the data and uses it according to your gestures into actions responses on the screen known as an ‘immersive experience’.
VR gaming devices
A VR gaming box a head-mounted device it gives virtual reality environment for the user. VR headsets are widely used for games there are several VR gaming devices in the market
The VR gaming headsets Vive and Rift both have 110 degree FOVs, Cardboard has 90, the GearVR has 96 and has rumor that Daydream have as much as 120.
However, VR gaming boxes can have special controllers, HTC Vive containing two infrared sensors and two controllers in the box, 70 different sensors combining headset. But, the Oculus Rift offers a different experience using close to the same technology.
The Rift uses Xbox One controller, an optional set of controllers that offer similar functionality to the Vive, known as Touch by Oculus. Further, these two controllers configure as one controller’s buttons onto foregrips with large rings covering your fingers. Meanwhile, the difficulties over hardware for the Vive and Rift, your PC doesn’t just have to run a 1080p game at 60 FPS, it has to run at a higher resolution at 90 FPS. Most hardware cannot do that. These devices are built flawless as they may lag behind in performance among them.
Although, VR gaming has bigger push from companies it can be a great success. The way VR work is combination of different technologies all working together to create a great experience.
