virtualreality World War III , Article by Larry Singol

Until two years ago if you would ask me what to buy in virtual reality, the answer was easy htc vive, I briefly remind those who do not remember, that at the time everyone was talking about Facebook and Oculus and at the end HTC VIVE surprised a much more cooked and in fact much more useful device,But that was three years ago.

Oculus at the time thought that virtual reality players would want to sit in front of the computer, so their assessment included only virtual reality glasses, xbox controller, and one sensor.

At the time, HTC released the VIVE which included two sensors, two signs, virtual reality glasses, the VIVE glasses were specially built for the ROOM SCALE, meaning real space movement, which made the VIVE a hit for the first virtual reality fans, the market adopted VIVE lovingly and the company managed to create a fan base for itself.

For almost a year, there was nothing to talk about on Facebook that only after receiving the blow that was hijacked from HTC VIVE began to change direction and of course for a few quick moves to steal some patents, so we really heard that there were behind the scenes wars and trials.

As Oculus licked the wounds, she began to release kits of the oculus touch and another sensor, although the Oculus hardware was able to compare, there were still many drawbacks in the software.

Oculus, which has unlimited resources of money, learned from the mistakes and invested hundreds of millions in developers and lowered the price to war against HTC, HTC as a very small Facebook company could not really stand up to Oculus and HTC even had to sell a smartphone factory to maintain its virtual reality division .

Rise of Oculus:

After undisputed control of global virtual reality for a short time, Facebook started breathing on the back of HTC and the company tried behind the scenes to get strong business partners even had Google calls at some point but the conversations did not mature.

At that time, HTC realized that it had to respond strongly and it went about developing two models, one wireless answering htc vive focus, the other answering HTC VIVE PRO, one mobile and one PC both models were virtual reality steroids for that era and only talking about PIMAX was maybe A potential threat in terms of HTC.

Against HTC's predictions, both products were a failure, not because the products were not the opposite. They were ahead of time, but significant eyewear technology has not yet reached the stage of mainstream consumer software use, due to its advanced technology. Among the models on the market did not justify the high price.

Compared to HTC after a lot of mess with the backstage at Oculus, Oculus has taken a completely different strategy, less advanced technology, more accessible and relatively cheap price, less simplicity and simplicity and lots of quality content soon turned Facebook into NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK.

The increase in sales of Oculus was meteoric, Oculus began to eat large bites from the global virtual reality market share that was also very small.

At the same time, Facebook released the Oculus Go, 4DOF mobile virtual reality goggles at a hilarious price and although it is not the same experience as the Glasses Rift became a global hit, at the same time Oculus sat firmly on developing content for training, education and industry and not just gaming.

Following the success of the Oculus Goggles Oculus announced at the recent conference two new models of Oculus, Oculus S and Oculus Quest two virtual reality goggles at higher prices when the Oculus Quest glasses need neither computer nor smartphone, so-called plug and play.

It is important to note that while htc has begun to abandon its home field a bit and has begun to invest more in the institutional market as opposed to Facebook investing heavily in gamers, surely htc has hit a bump and the market is only heating up as new models continue to emerge, those you do not want are already there, Microsoft, Facebook , Sony, Samsung, Google, DELL, PIMAX, HTC VIVE, and I can go on and on ...

There is no doubt that everything can change every moment, VIVE still has hats in the hat such as vive cosmos trackers, loyal fans and more, although at this time there is no doubt that this year's Facebook in the field of virtual reality, but in VR as in VR is changing every moment and it is possible Know what will lead to a day, so let's go over some of the latest news in the field, what other models are we going to see in the coming year?

Nintendo jumps to VR (again)

HP's New Virtual Reality Glasses Reverb Launched Anywhere This Year

Reverb (former code name 'Copper'), which inherits the company's previous virtual reality goggles, the new virtual reality goggles are sporty-looking and in fact completely abandon the old design, which is a relatively big leap for HP and just like Rift and Vive, which use 1,080 × 1,200 views per eye, the Reverb lenses are further enhanced by the fact that it is a full RGB sub-pixel LCD display (which usually has more filler than OLED) which means less door effect than equal resolution OLED.

Anyway I would love for comment comments will be gladly welcomed and your opinion on what is going on in the field, this is one of a series of new articles about virtual reality.

For the third article in the series.

virtualreality World War III part 2, Article by Larry Singol - The beginning of the end and the new beginning

As I said in a previous article, the market is boiling, everyone wants to be inside and be in their cause, and I'm not just talking about the giant companies and countries, I'm talking about the market itself that is starting to mature, consumers around the world are beginning to realize that virtual reality will not go away, it's going to take us to places no one is through In them never.

Virtual reality will allow anyone to be a hero, in the future virtual reality will connect to the brain through a direct computer interface (reminding you something?)

We will live in virtual reality that we cannot differentiate from one reality to another, all realities will be just as real as we are currently defining reality, but before that happens, we will see different and different technologies that will try to connect us to digital space, such as: virtual reality contact lenses, gloves, technologies Eye tracking and more and more and more ... I will try this article to put some order in the coming mess.

Not only in the field of hardware will we see significant changes in the coming years, but also in the field of software, we can already see the development of serious gaming companies that are developing serious titles.

Vive Pro EYE

HTC Vive Pro Eye, this virtual reality glasses integrated with eye tracking, vive submitted the documents for review by the FCC.

Which means in virtual reality glasses vive pro eye we will see eye tracking in 2020, for those who have previously tried virtual reality glasses that have eye tracking such as fove will immediately understand that this is a game changer, eye tracking in virtual reality is required.

oculus Quest, oculus Rift S

Oculus joins Microsoft and the real-world mix glasses that work in the same method.

Valve Index and Knuckles

pimax 5K 

A huge end-to-end screen with crazy resolution, no longer the annoying circles and that's what I'm personally waiting for.

In addition to eye tracking it will be natural for us, we do not really look from the neck as in VR (came out rhyme) you look a lot from the corner of the eye, such as passing a beautiful girl, or already handsome.

virtualreality World War III part 3, Article by Larry Singol -  The Rise of Machines

Hi Friends Again Larry Singol from Virtual Reality Israel, in this article we will talk about the next few years in virtual reality and although READY PLAYER ONE is a good movie, Steven Spielberg is already old, he no longer sees the future at the right pace, in the number one actor movie he supposedly presents A future where everyone is connected to virtual reality with VR equipment that already exists today, in all sorts of illogical solutions, and the equipment in the movie already exists at the time of the movie itself, it seems as if our Stephen has not done enough research.

Pictures from the movie, ready player one

Dear Mr. Spielberg ?!?!? What is this ? puppet string installation? Does that make sense to you? Have you ever played in virtual reality at all ? Do you think the future of virtual reality is the 1980s ?

Which is what I liked about this movie ? , I liked the glasses the character uses in this movie.  But today I already know that glasses have nothing to do with the virtual reality of the near future.

Although the image from the movie Avatar but the idea is similar, a company called (FDVR) develops a virtual reality interface, the difference that the future virtual reality will not work on glasses everything will be a computer brain interface.

Anyone who wants to do FALL DIVE on the technology is invited to this link 

eye contact lenses vr

Screen lenses will probably be used in quantum technology in the not too distant future, so virtual reality glasses won't be with us for a relatively long time.

neuralink/elon musk 

So for those who haven't heard about Elon Musk's company, acknowledge Nirolink, our company's goal is unequivocally to connect our computer and brain to virtual reality.

It is important to note that today's virtual reality is in the first mobile era and the smartphone period will equal Musk's neolink, a computer-based virtual brain-based reality.
