“Virtual Reality And Augmented Reality In Retail Market” research provides a basic overview of the industry including definitions, classifications, applications and
What can we expect in the future of technology?
According to my research the future of technology it’s really interesting because technology is revolutionizing many different types of businesses.
Internet of Things (IoT)
The Internet of Things enables the next stage of the Internet whereby smart devices and other endpoints get connected via Internet technology.
is a web of hardware devices, home appliances, vehicles, and other products embedded with electronics, sensors, connectivity, etc. which empowers these things to connect and exchange information. All the companies are following this technology trends for the business that will change the whole concept of running a business in the future.
The impact ratio will totally depend on your industry. For example, for those who work in marketing, advertising, media or business management, IoT could provide a wealth of information on how consumers engage with products by tracking their interactions with digital devices. In turn, this data could be used to optimize marketing campaigns and user experiences.
Web 3.0 will be based on the semantic web. This is a technology, where information and data are stored in such a way that the computer systems understand them. It may give birth to a next-gen artificial intelligence.
is slated to be the new paradigm in web interaction and will mark a fundamental change in how developers create websites, but more importantly, how people interact with those websites. Computer scientists and Internet experts believe that this new paradigm in web interaction will further make people’s online lives easier and more intuitive as smarter applications such as better search functions give users exactly what they are looking for, since it will be akin to an artificial intelligence which understands context rather than simply comparing keywords, as is currently the case.
, which once may have seemed like something out of a Sci-Fi novel, is seeing the light and applications of the technology are already being worked on. In particular, with the rise of the Internet of Things, Information Technology and Cybersecurity firms have begun to adopt artificial neural networks in order to monitor and prevent DDoS attacks.
Virtual reality is an emerging technology that could provide the answer to this tech world. Together with one of his best partner technology “Augmented Reality” has the potential to reshape the world of retail, and almost a third of customers believe that more should be invested in these technologies to ensure that they play a more important role in their shopping experience.
With the application of VR technology e-commerce companies can develop an immersive customer experience that at the end of the day it’s going to be inevitable for other retail companies to use.
Surprisingly, 77.24% of buyers abandon their cars before completing a purchase. This indicates that retailers must do much more to convince customers to go ahead with their choice and buy items online.
According to 2019 it is estimated that 24 million virtual reality devices will be sold worldwide. From this same research, the market for smart augmented reality glasses is expected to be worth $ 1.2 billion by the end of this year., by
The U.S. military is already using VR to train its soldiers for certain applications. For example, hand-to-hand combat is an important part of certain fighting disciplines and training. Imagine using VR to fight in an almost-realistic situation, while never actually getting bruised or hurt yourself.
The military can also use this in training for sharpshooting, parachuting, diving, and many other situations. It can also be used as a virtual classroom for surgical students, without ever having to cut into a cadaver itself. It can be used to learn the intricacies of machines such as automobiles, by allowing an instantaneous virtual deconstruction to see just how all the parts come together and their varying significances.
In the healthcare field, virtual reality has some benefits that I think most people could be shocked when they realize how can they implement this technology for medical treatments, surgery training, behavioral treatments, phobia treatments, etc.
There are a few great examples of how VR is been used in the medical fields.
is a medical training platform that offers training for medical staff of all skill levels, from surgeons to any member of the medical staff.
It allows professionals to practice with sensitive surgery procedures with very precise hand-based interactions in an immersive training environment.
, a Spanish and American behavioral health technology company, offers unique treatment for psychological conditions such as fear of flying, needles, various animals, public speaking, general anxiety or agoraphobia.
With the help of VR, patients are put in situations which causes a rush of fear and anxiety, of course under the supervision of a professional. Their task is to face their fears and gradually let them go, while their imagination is helped by VR. By offering psychologist a ‘therapist’s control panel’ a shared scene to view what the patient is viewing, a Biofeedback measurement and sensors to analyze what the patient is feeling. This is particularly helpful in identifying what are the stimuli and triggers for that person.
Another great example of how VR could be used to improve our health is VR fitness apps like for example VirZOOM The idea behind VirZOOM is: the speed of peddling on the bike determines the speed with which you move in the VR world. There are sensors on the bike that connect the speed of peddling with the speed of movement in the VR game. Along with other controls like a trigger and action buttons, there is a heart rate sensor, through which you can keep tabs on your health progress.
The technology of virtual reality has been incorporating in the classrooms over the years has truly helped add a few new techniques to teaching that can help teachers provide a better learning experience to their students. Virtual reality has played a very important role in this as well.
Virtual field trips
There are many ways in which virtual reality can , and one of those is virtual field trips. In a very short amount of time, these have managed to become of the best applications of VR learning, as they can travel the students to any place in the world without them having to move from their seats.
Imagine being in a geography or even a history class, and learning about a certain place and its importance, while being able to actually see everything that you are being taught. This is truly one of the best ways to teach students of any age about the wonders of the world, where they can explore everything they wish on the planet, and actually, make learning a lot more fun and interesting.
Improving various skills
A great way in which virtual reality techniques are contributing to enhancing and improving the current education system is by offering students the chance to apply the skills they are being taught from their classroom in a more possible, everyday scenario. Law students are already benefiting from VR representations of real trials and other fields of studies are starting to follow their lead.
Various companies and even some great writing services likelike to focus on their own blogs about how important VR can be when it comes to helping a student work on their own skills, whether they have to do with writing or even being presented with real-life situations of what they’re studying.
One of the best things about virtual reality is that it can truly help everyone attend a class, no matter where they’re at. There are many people who might not have the privilege to actually attend a classroom, like many postgraduate students who follow their master’s online.
One of the best examples is Stanford School of Business, which is already offering a certificate program which can be fully delivered through VR. Being able to watch a lecture online while not being able to attend, is already helping break a lot of barriers in education and is a very promising field with many more universities and schools joining in in the future.
Game-based learning techniques
It is commonly known that the best way to teach something to a child is through a game. Virtual reality can give teachers the opportunity to approach learning games from a different perspective. There are many ways in which games can be improved through VR.
First and foremost,are a lot more interactive than regular games used in the classrooms. The children can interact a lot better and share their experiences without being judged on their abilities.
Not only that, but interactive and kinesthetic games are known to help players memorize the things they come across in the virtual games. This can truly help students better memorize things and increase their ability to learn.
Better cooperation between students and teachers
When you think of incorporating reality, though, VR actually helps in one-on-one learning and this is actually necessary for some students., you might probably believe that it completely takes away the opportunity for the teacher to focus solely on each and every student. In
Using technology, such as VR, the teacher actually has the chance to communicate solely with one student and help provide them with the needed materials to improve and better themselves. The student won’t have to feel ashamed to ask something in front of the entire classroom as this whole experience is a lot more personal and it can improve the cooperation and the relationship between a student and a teacher.
Virtual reality can change the way we approach education
While virtual reality still has a long way to go until it can fully be incorporated into the classrooms, it has already started to show some positive changes. The educational system can truly become a lot easier for the students and they can finally have a chance to work on their own personal skills without feeling left out.
Virtual reality can help build a stronger relationship between teachers and students and it can help make students a lot more interested in what they’re learning. VR games and practical examples of what they’re studying can help students memorize what they’re learning a lot faster and better understand how to use it in their everyday lives.
Also, VR is changing the way we can enjoy live sports events and the whole entertainment industry including the music industry.
Some companies are bringing spectators closer to the court, field, or ring through the use of VR technology.

For football fans, Strength in Numbers has developed technology that is being used by Europe’s biggest teams to offer a completely new viewing experience. Juventus VR And Aston Villa football teams allow fans to experience football from the point of view of their favorite heroes. The VR gives fans access to the stadium’s pitch, inside the dressing rooms, and behind the scenes at their stadiums.

And as I said earlier Virtual reality it’s also taking over the music industry to improve the music festival experience in 2017 Coachella presented its attendees with a psychedelic experience situated in a 60-feet-high dome, where Chrysalis, an 8-minute virtual reality film that San Francisco-based studio Obscura Digital spent 3 months developing, was screened. Instead of donning VR goggles, attendees look around on the walls of the 120-feet-diameter rotunda where images were projected.
Looking into the entire music industry, 360 live-streaming performances sees an even bigger market. Currently, NextVR is leading said endeavor, where they teamed with Live Nation and Citi to broadcast dozens of concerts in VR in 2016. They’ve produced VR experiences for Imagine Dragons and Lady Antebellum. In another partnership with Samsung in August, NextVR broadcasted Coldplay’s “A Head Full of Dreams Tour” live from Chicago’s Soldier Field, where fans from over 50 countries were able to watch with their Samsung Gear VR headset.
Having a rich library of music content, VeeR VR is also making progress on supporting 360 live-streaming.
Given these successful precedents and the increasing popularity of the VR technology, paired with the lowering thresholds of VR hardware, it’s only a matter of time before virtual reality and 360 media are generally adopted for entertainment purposes.
