Virtual Reality in Business
As virtual reality and augmented reality become more popular, one question arise: How can they be applied in business? Turns out, just about every field of business can benefit from VR. In the virtual world, our physical senses are limited, but our creativity is not. Currently, VR is being used mostly by the gaming industry, but there are many fields where VR can be beneficial. For example, VR can be used as a marketing tool to help customers interact with the product or service. It is also gaining popularity in training field, ranging from military target training to surgery practices. By using virtual targets, VR allows donors and surgeons to practice their skills and test new tools and procedures safely. This not only decreases risks and medical complexities, it also saves a lot of money in the long run.
The biggest advantage of VR training is that there is no real life repercussions. Surgeons can reset the virtual patient and allows them to practice as many times as they need.
