Virtual Reality is the trending technology in the world. The things we could  imagine at a time, now it’s becoming reality through the impressive technology called Virtual Reality.We observe the drastic change with virtual technology like in Entertainment, education, Retail & healthcare.

Virtual reality (VR) means how one experience things through their computers that don’t really exist. Virtual Reality (VR) literally makes it possible to experience anything, anywhere, anytime. It is the most immersive type of reality technology and can convince the human brain that it is somewhere it is really not. The definition of ‘virtual’ is simulated and reality is what we experience as human beings. So the term ‘virtual reality’ basically means ‘simulated-reality’. We know the world through our senses and perception system

 

How it works?

UX(User Experience) in web applications were always carried by mouse and keyboards. Similarly, in mobile applications UX were always carried by touch screens along with with gestures. But advancements in the field of Virtual reality, Augmented reality and touch less gestures are the latest trending drivers of UX. Understanding these new UX drivers is the need of the hour. Technology of Virtual reality is the artificial environment which is created by a mixture of hardware and software. Head mounted display with headphones and hand controllers to offer a fully immersive experience.

Virtual Reality is developed on programming languages like Java, JavaScript, C++(unreal), C#(unity) and Python.

Java

Java is the general purpose and object- oriented programming language which is useful for developing the cross-platform applications. Java 3D application programmers interface (API) provides a very flexible platform for creating the flexible graphics applications. Java 3D creates the virtual reality application such as workbench applications; head tracked shutter-glass based a desktop application and portals, etc.

JavaScript

JavaScript is the language of the web. This language uses the WebVR platform for creating the virtual reality application. The WebVR API transforms your virtual reality created web games and interactivity on the web. The WebVR is the excellent library using which the developer can easily create an application in virtual reality for the web.

C++

It is the most popular and most powerful object oriented programming language around. A program for Virtual reality can be written on Unreal Engine 4 Platform(UE4).  The UE4 allows you to create a virtual reality concept without writing the code. This platform has a visual scripting system called as Blueprint which permits to connect the logic block to do what you want. If you want to add some extra functionality, then you can also write your code. The C++ also plays an important role in developing a game in virtual reality.

C#

C# is a modern object-oriented programming language designed for developing apps on the Microsoft platform and requires the .NET framework on Windows to work. C# can be used to create almost anything but is particularly strong at building Windows desktop applications and games. This is very popular language in developing virtual reality applications.

Python

Virtual reality using the Python creates an isolated environment. It means that each project has its dependencies. Python language has its unique way of downloading, resolving and has some interesting packages which allow the developer to create a project in virtual reality quickly.

 

There is wide range of uses of Virtual Reality such as:

 

  • Gaming
  • Watching 3D and 360` videos
  • Flight simulation for pilots
  • Training of troops in military
  • Real estate: model blueprints, representation of interiors, virtual tour of building design and structure.
  • Healthcare: robotic surgery, phobia treatment, distracting patient’s concentration while a surgery
  • Engineering: industrial planning, building design, simulated construction
  • Retailing: virtual usage of cosmetics, giving feel of using a product or service to customers, influencing shoppers’ decisions
  • Tourism and travel: virtual tour of travelling experience and destination to visit, a tour of hotel rooms and resorts

 

The Virtual Reality has become mainstream technology for gaming industry but the time is not far when it will become a major area of concern for software and web and app development industries. These are developed on various programming languages as mentioned above.
