Virtual Reality News

Wiser has created a virtual reality news email that you can sign up to. Why? Because it appears closer now than ever before as the technology is advancing quickly, and for many it is one of the most exciting sectors in the tech industry. Virtual reality is where an individual is given a multi-sensory experience with a computer device. In this way, the user is immersed in a computer-simulated environment with the ultimate goal being to deliver taste, sense and touch sensory experiences, as well as sight and sound. It has been the subject of science fiction for as long as there has been science fiction, but recent technology advances have brought mainstream virtual reality devices a step closer. Just look at Facebook's acquisition of the virtual reality headset maker Oculus in 2014 for $2 billion dollars. Sony and Google are also involved in the space, with research going on in the gaming and medical industries, as well as the military. There is nothing virtual about the virtual reality news email from Wiser though. We collate the best articles from around the web so that you can stay informed quickly and easily. Register today.
