Places to explore in VR

VR – Virtual Reality

For a long time, the concept of Virtual Reality has been touted as the next big thing in education. The concept of exploring virtual worlds from your computer screen bring another promise of technology to the end user.

It’s an exciting concept and there are so many things that are available but I’m not seeing it completely accepted everywhere. It requires a good internet connection, places to explore, and for the best results, an appropriate headset.

Those that meet the requirements are good to go and are ready to take on this next frontier. Others are still wondering…

I got a whole new appreciation for the aircraft, the design, and certainly for the pilots who make sure that you get from starting point to destination.

However, with the wonders of computer technology, I have a whole deeper appreciation for the job of the pilot. It has been a long time since I’ve seen a virtual reality simulation that engaged me this deeply.
