VR Headsets are more commonly user with computer games, however they can be used for so many other exciting applications for simulation and training. Some headsets even have eye and head tracking sensors!

Applications include:

  • Architecture and Real Estate – The ability to be immersed in the new building or room, have 360 degree views and it really helps you better understand scale. Some things look big on paper but in reality are too small.
  • Education and Tourism – Great for history, geology, geography and previewing potential holiday locations.
  • Automotive and Flight Simulators – Car designers are using this in addition to pilots to better refine their handling skills
  • Medical – Practice before surgery and some of their simulators even have haptic feedback so you can feel the amount of pressure required
