When innovative minds come together.
Here at VR360 we see ourselves as pioneers in the Virtual Reality space, we have been involved in virtual reality since 1998, when we created one of the first “Google Street views” like map systems. We mapped several cities and from the map you could go into the streets and view panorama images “similar to google streetview” during this time we also mapped the inside of businesses and people could walk from the street into several restaurants, guesthouses, hardware stores and computer shops. We also mapped Events, concerts and airshows, which allowed people from anywhere to view these events and capturing the history of such events.
Obstacles in Virtual Reality
“Everyone who seen the virtual reality stuff at the time, thought that it was really cool” – However technology at the time made this awesome technology almost worthless since there was no easy way to distribute the content to a large audience.
- There was no easy way to distribute content to the masses.
- Internet speeds did not permit the easy distribution of Virtual Reality.
- Camera systems had low resolutions and image sizes where big and fussy.
- Equipment was very expensive.
- a lack of computing power made it difficult to render images and video.
Smartphones changed EVERYTHING for Virtual Reality
Well almost everything, today’s smartphones are very clever devices and most have more processing power than almost any pc that came from the 90’s. Mobile phone screen technology have also advanced in such a way that some smartphone screens today are much higher quality than the average television or computer screen. Smartphone developers have revolutionized the way that people communicate and view content over the world and it is mainly because of these advancements that Virtual Reality is now mainstream and accessible to anyone in the world with access to a computer, tablet or smartphone.
Some Smartphone Technology we needed to make Virtual Reality a Reality
- High Quality Camera and Video Camera’s – Now every one has it in their hands, some people all the time! – There was a time that we didn’t walk around with camera’s
- GPS Systems – Most smartphones today comes standard with GPS systems
- Gyroscope – an important technology allowing us to move the scene and move with the scene when turning your smartphone up or down.
