Why Virtual Reality Is The Saving Grace Of Education.

Washington Leadership AcademyI always have been a great fan of virtual reality (VR). I know that there are a lot of things that we will be going to learn and enjoy with this new technology. I agree with the CEO and founder of Unimersive regarding his thought of VR as the saving grace of education. VR has been held up as the poster child for educational development. When you are using VR as an educational tool, you have this learning and engagement with the audience. It will never be the same as traditional educational environments with chalkboards, classrooms, etc. VR has a capability to engage, forcing your mind to think. It’s also a favorite gadget for kids.  There could be a negative feedback regarding that matter, however, let us face the fact that this world is taking us to the next level where technology is the main source of knowledge, relaxation and etc. This device is a great tool for education. Some schools have been using VR as one of their teaching tools to show students exactly how a specific thing looks like and make the subject more interesting.

Will your VR Fitness Experience Fall Prey to the “Pepsi Challenge”?

Why compare VR to Pepsi Challenge? VR great for fitness. A lot of people enjoy this type of exercise to get fit and have good health. But before anything else, let us get to the question why we compare VR to the Pepsi Challenge. Pepsi has been a favorite drink of more people because of its taste. Coke as the Pepsi competitor decided to have a new taste. Something sweeter. However, it came to the point where people started to look or go back to the original taste of Coke because they missed how the other drink tasted. Little did the manufacturer know that people will definitely say good things and will appreciate how delicious it is when they have it for few minutes. They did not think of what will happen if they drink too much of it, will they still be satisfied? Will the taste be more delicious? That can be also applied to VR. People who use VR a lot will have the thought of being bored or tired of doing the same thing all over again. Don’t fall into that trap.
