The Evolution of Virtual Reality

THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION has changed the way we live, work and play. Art has gone from brushstrokes to pixels. And all our communications have been reduced to bits and bytes. But now, the cutting edge of digital technology is intended to recreate this “analog” look and feel. New devices that connect the real and human world with your computer.

What is virtual reality? If we take the meaning of these two words, it brings the virtual world to the real world of humans to experience near reality. So virtual reality means near-reality, this basically means anything but it usually refers to a specific type of reality emulation. It is a computer technology combining the physical environments or props, to generate realistic images sounds and other sensations that a user physically experiences in a virtual or imaginary environment.

In Technical terms, virtual reality is used to describe a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which can explore and interacted by humans so anyone can become a part of the virtual world or get immersed into the virtual environment to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.

There are many types of VR systems available but all share the same characteristics such as the plus they change as the person moves around their environment which corresponds with the change in their field of vision. The aim is for a seamless join between the person’s head and eye movements and the appropriate response, e.g. change in perception. This ensures that the virtual environment is both realistic and enjoyable.

The aim is for a natural, free-flowing form of interaction which will result in a memorable experience of the unreal world with a little real experience.


Autonomous Car – A Self Driving Car Technology.

After the years of Hearings, inquiries and decision making, Autonomous vehicles are finally real and on the roads now.

Now, it has been officially entered the era of level four autonomy for self-driving cars.

In the United States, the general public have the opportunity to ride through a half-mile stretch of Las Vegas in a new shuttle built by French AI company Navya. The shuttle is autonomous. It does not have a steering wheel or brake pedal. It is operated by the American Automobile Association (AAA) nonprofit organization, as part of an initiative to help spread positive knowledge of technology.

The vehicle has a top speed of 40 km / h (25 mph), but will probably only run at 16-32 km / h (10-15 mph), so it will not win any races. It communicates with traffic lights and is guided by GPS and a camera system. It will carry up to 11 passengers at a time and the rides are free.

Jorge Cervantes, director of operations and development for the city of Las Vegas, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

“This is the next step to see if autonomous vehicles have a conflict with real-time traffic, which will help us determine if this technology can be implemented in the long run.”

The achievement of level four autonomy was a big success and both Waymo and Navya should be proud to make history. At level four, a vehicle does not need a steering wheel or pedals; It can work to its full functionality without human being inside. The next step, level five, would involve a vehicle that does not need to connect to the cloud, GPS, traffic network or any other form of external information.

Currently, vehicles on US roadways are operated without any human direction at all. Of course, safety measures are in place, and in these continuous tests, people are inside the vehicles in case it is necessary to press an “extraction” button.

For all those who have waited impatiently for the future, when artificial intelligence would become so advanced that we could achieve truly driverless cars.


5G Technology – A Remote Controlled World

5G technology stands for 5th generation mobile technology. 5G mobile technology has changed the way mobile phones can be used in a very wide bandwidth. The user has never experienced a technology of such value.

Nowadays, mobile users are very aware of cell phone (mobile) technology. 5G technologies include all kinds of advanced features that make 5G mobile technology more powerful and in high demand in the near future.

The 5G networks planned at this time will operate in a high-frequency band of the wireless spectrum, between 30 GHz and 300 GHz, in what is known as the millimeter wave spectrum. These millimeter waves can transfer lots of data at very high speeds, but they do not travel as far as the lower frequency waves used in 4G networks. High frequency millimeter waves also have difficulty moving between walls, buildings and other obstacles.

A new revolution of 5G technology is about to begin because 5G technology going to give tough completion to normal computer and laptops whose marketplace value will be affected. There are lots of improvements from 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G to 5G in the world of telecommunications. The new coming 5G technology is available in the market at affordable rates, high peak future and much reliability than its preceding technologies.

The 5G technology is going to be the high resolution for crazy cell phone user and bi-directional large bandwidth shaping.


IoT Technology – A Trend to the Real World

Let your house get connected with the smart life of IoT technology products that will allow you to manage a wide range of features within your home through a single application.

The IoT which is known as the Internet of Things is an interconnected network of physical devices, vehicles, home applications and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity which enables the objects to connect and exchange data.

The Internet of Things revolves around increased machine-to-machine communication; it’s built on cloud computing and networks of data-gathering sensors; it’s mobile, virtual, and instantaneous connection; and they say it’s going to make everything in our lives from streetlights to seaports “smart.”

Using IoT technology you can remotely control home appliances from anywhere and anytime, secure your home through door sensors, motion detectors and sirens also most importantly you can save energy by monitoring temperature and humidity at home. So you do not need to keep on checking your lights and fans. However, this IoT technology is going to be the major engine for creating new products and new services to the real world.
