Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: What is Virtual Reality?

A: Any Virtual Reality system is essentially a combination of hardware and software that allows users to become immersed in a realistic 3D setting and enables them to navigate and perform simulated activities. By involving multiple senses (visual, auditory, tactile) in the experience, the virtual environment gives the user a more complete representation of the world and thus provides a higher degree of engagement and a greater sense of presence.

Q: What are the applications of Virtual Reality?

A: VR is becoming a major component of many companies’ businesses functions. VR applications are used in architecture, construction, education, electronics, engineering, entertainment, equipment operation, fashion, gaming, healthcare, machinery maintenance, military operations, retail, surgeries, etc.

Q: How Virtual Reality (VR) differs from Augmented Reality (AR)?

A: Virtual Reality is a fully computer generated, interactive 3D environment. Advanced computing, networking, interaction, display and graphics technologies allow users to view, hear, touch, and even smell the created world. However, everything here is entirely virtual.

Augmented Reality, or mixed reality, supplements the real world with virtual (computer-generated) objects that coexist in the same space. In other words, AR links the real and virtual worlds.

Q: What kind of hardware is used in Virtual Reality systems?

A: VR systems can integrate head-mounted displays, data gloves, position trackers (magnetic, optical, inertial), head trackers, haptic devices, 3D controllers, stereoscopic 3D displays, VR domes, etc.

Q: What software is required for a VR system?

A: The basic components of a VR system can be broken down into an Input Processor, a Simulation Processor, a Rendering Processor, and a Virtual World Database (VWDB).

Q: What are the challenges in creating Virtual Reality systems?

A: The creation of a robust VR system, capable of producing an interactive immersive multisensory 3D synthetic environment, is often a technically challenging task. The major challenges that IT engineers are aware of include:

  • Performance. Performance is the key requirement of any VR system. If the system is not updating the environment quickly enough, it is impossible for the app to operate in an interactive manner. Performance problems can cause the user to experience not just inconvenience and disengagement, but even physical side effects, like disorientation and cybersickness.
  • Complexity. VR systems are inherently complex, since they integrate a wide variety of hardware components combined with an abundance of advanced algorithms and software code. This imposes strong requirements on software developers who should also take into account very low-level issues like processors, graphics hardware, drivers for particular VR I/O devices, etc.
  • Reliability and stability. VR applications are required to run reliably. Many VR solutions are born in research labs where a program may crash once every five times, which is generally considered acceptable. Corporate users, however, expect a high-quality solution and will not tolerate any down time, crashes and sporadic behavior in the applications.

Q: What are the main advantages of Virtual Reality solutions from the User Experience standpoint?

A: VR applications significantly enrich human computer interaction. In comparison to traditional computer applications, they offer greater features:

  • Interactivity. Synthesizing the environment at run-time, VR systems directly respond to user actions, which leads to the sensation of a more natural connection with the artificial world.
  • Immersion, sense of presence and engagement. VR environments are perceptually immersive, providing a sense of presence and engagement. Sometimes, the sense of being “inside” the VR application can be very convincing and users may feel that they are a part of the running application.
  • Multi-sensation. A VR system makes use of multiple human senses, including visual, auditory, haptic, smell, and taste. Multi-sensory presentation increases the degree of engagement in the virtual reality.
  • User-generated content. In many virtual worlds, users can create persistent content, including parts of the virtual world itself, which other users can interact with.
