Simumak’s simulation solutions and Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is one of the best technologies with which to promote interest in training by being able to explore a parallel reality in which the user challenges himself when forced to leave his comfort zone in a controlled environment.

Virtual reality technology is increasing by leaps and bounds, understanding it as that sensation of total immersion in a 360-degree real-world environment through technological devices like our simulation solutions.

Virtual reality is one of the best technologies with which to boost the interest in training. Thanks to it, the user learns “by doing” and being able to explore a parallel reality in which he challenges himself leaving his comfort zone in a controlled environment.

This learning becomes an exciting training process for the user where the graphic nature of this type of technology creates a virtual learning to which most people tend to respond better because of how attractive it can be to them, being something more dynamic and innovative.

One of the best uses that can be given to this type of technology is its implementation in simulation solutions such as those developed by us. Through our simulators, users are able to receive information that tests their abilities in a specific situation, allowing them to acquire knowledge from the way in which they are trained.

 

Is Virtual Reality the same as Augmented Reality?

Not at all. Augmented Reality, unlike Virtual Reality, requires less investment and is characterized by the digital projection of images in our real environment through a device or screen. To sum up, Augmented Reality adds an interactive experience within the existing reality, it does not create a new virtual environment from cero as Virtual Reality does. In this case, the user is improving his skills in our real environment altered by the projection of such digitized images.

The potential for Virtual Reality is growing, and unless it is limited by the ways in which society decides to apply it, the increasingly common use of Virtual Reality at different levels will become a more massive use that will probably transform the way we see the world.
