4. Live Events
Imagine having the ability to watch the 2021 World Cup with the crowd, tracking the game in real time with a tilt of your head. Goal? Celebrate with the people around you, see their reactions and feel the thrill of the match—just as if you were physically there.
Here’s how it’ll work: First, there should be one seat dedicated for the 360° camera as the source of data for the VR headset. Second, it must be sanctioned by FIFA; fans can book a virtual seat, which means more profit for them!
3. Learn a Language
Holograms are no longer a fantasy with the Microsoft Holo Lens tease. Now imagine being able to learn, say, a new language with them. Being able to see your instructor in 3D form is obviously much better than flat 2D, right? Learning via virtual reality could be more engaging than we imagined. The best part? Being able to meet classmates in hologram form and being able to speak and practice with the. Who knows—you might even find love in Spanish 101 VR class. ¿Cuál es tu signo, señorita?
2. Virtual Reality Cinema
It’s been done, and everyone’s excited about how virtual reality can change the landscape of film making. Imagine being able to roam around inside the movie itself and having the freedom to follow the characters that you’re interested in—even the antagonists. Imagine this happening in multiple narratives, a la Cloud Atlas. The replay potential is unimaginable, and so is the challenge in this mode of storytelling.
1. The Sims in First-person
We’re a sucker for life-simulation, especially when it allows us to realize our dreams and aspirations at a moment’s notice—which is exactly what The Sims banks on. But what if we were able to play the Sims in first-person via our VR headsets? Imagine the level of interaction and immersion. We can spoil ourselves silly inside the world of Sims. The possibilities are only as endless as our imaginations.
