When you hear the word “Virtual Reality”, one immediately thinks of gaming and how gamers
more than ever have interacted with the virtual world through 360° experiences. Here we are
exploring other avenues of VR applications outside the Gaming domain. Qatar has had a great
adoption rate for Gaming Gadgets and VR Headsets since the beginning of the Pandemic, every
one is now more Digitalised than ever giving a new perceptive to Gaming and VR companies
worldwide in providing more applications for people to use
COVID-19 changed how we go about our day to day activities from conducting business to fitness,
VR’s strength started to show, benefiting both commercial and personal applications. In this blog,
we will list down the top 4 applications of VR other than gaming that you probably didn’t think of.
COVID-19 came with a few positive changes, one of them is an increase in the mental and physical
health awareness. Individuals have resorted to attending online classes gain motivation instead
of working out alone at home. Imagine having a VR set where you can exercise with a professional
instructor and a group of people from all over the world in your living room!
2. Live Events & Entertainment
Not being able to attend concerts or events something as simple as a friend’s engagement party
or wedding ceremony has affected people socially. Even in the sports industry with many
countries banning fans from attending football matches. Virtual Reality has helped in bridging the
gap, now one can attend live events from the comfort of their homes and can experience live
events as if they were there. Cinemas and movie industry are being disrupted by companies such
as Netflix; with a VR set, you can experience cinemas at home as well.
There is no doubt that we all experienced how education has drastically changed since the
beginning of COVID-19 with classrooms being held online on Zoom and other video conferencing
platforms. Students and parents have experienced a demotivation in the new approach for
education; it’s too rigid, robotic and lacking the human interaction.
Teachers and professors have been coming up with various ways to help students engagement
increase in online classes. If you are a teacher, parent or related to an education field; it might be
a good idea to think about implementing VR Headsets. They can immerse students and
professors in exciting worlds that were not even possible before. A history teacher can get
students to experience dinosaurs and historical events around them; exploring the depths of
oceans, navigating through the human body, now students can feel like they are still in the
classroom; all thanks to virtual reality!
Majority of the people had to work from home when COVID-19 hit. Conducting meetings online,
be it with a client, a vendor or even internally. Virtual reality meetings for brainstorming, taking
requirements have been in popular demand. It gives companies and professionals the
opportunity to demonstrate their products and services in a much more visual manner resulting
in an improvement of business; in some businesses they experienced better results than pre
COVID such as E-commerce.
