8. It’s not just for gamers

It’s being used to train everyone from military pilots to surgeons

With gaming prospects on the rise, it’s easy to overlook how virtual reality is already being implemented for practical purposes. The military has already been using virtual reality for years in order to train soldiers in everything from flight simulation to medic training to helping to treat PTSD. The idea behind the latter is help soldiers overcome their trauma by exposing victims of PTSD to their triggers in a safe environment.

Virtual reality can also be credited as a life saving measure as it is currently being used to train surgeons. Practicing high-risk operations in a virtual reality setting allows surgeons to make mistakes and ultimately learn from them. This process has been shown to successfully increase the skills of surgeons as well as decrease errors in the operating room.

I know about this gaming console in the 90s. Then it was a radically new concept in a gaming industry. But more popular were portable game consoles. Therefore, many have chosen them instead of this game console. Now VR games are very popular. A level of a virtual world in modern virtual reality helmets is much higher. But the cost of high-quality virtual reality helmets is high. In cheap helmets, you can only play low-quality games. A great alternative are the centers of virtual reality. For example, the center of virtual reality in Melbourne - https://virivr.com.au/. Here for a small fee, you can play quality VR games.
