Virtual Reality and Augmented reality
I think this workshop was my favorite. I had never really experienced Vr or ar really before this workshop apart from Snapchat filters and the blippar app.
Me with the Augmented reality App
Virtual reality is where there is a full immersion into the world whereas Augmented reality is augmenting things into our world. the first real world use of AR was in American football . Augmented realities uses right now are found in Snapchat and the filters with facial recognition.
In the last couple of years there has been a influx of different companies making vr headsets including one by htc called the Vive as seen below it is a small headset that the user wears and has two lenses which create the environment screens. I really enjoyed using this technology as it was really immersive and engaging. in the real world this could be used in the training of doctors to learn them how to do intricate surgeries and practices.
