Sports and Training
Through the use of virtual reality, the sports industry has evolved tremendously.
It is being used by many athletes as a training aid to help them measure and analyze their athletic performance by placing them in virtual obstacles and fields as well as helping them view exactly what they are doing wrong, increasing their overall effectiveness.
VR is also used to enhance the sports viewing experience as it can put people within the playing field itself or in the front row per-say through broadcasting the event in real-time to the virtual reality headsets.
Within the US and UK, virtual reality has been adapted by many soldiers in order to train them for real-world threats, without the risk of getting them initially in trouble or causing severe damage from real wounds.
Through the use of VR technology, the solider can be placed within different zones and locations, such as placing them in a battlefield, or in the air through flight simulation, making sure that they are capable of resisting these tense scenarios while reducing the cost of actually recreating these scenarios in the real world.
