03.05.2018 08:53

With our new whitepaper on the topic of augmented and virtual reality, we bring a brand-new overview of the latest market developments, including hardware, software, and best practise examples.

With its Daydream platform, Google has entered the virtual reality market, massively uniting all in-house activities. Two new headsets, presented together with Lenovo and Yi, work without inserting a smartphone – finally. Learn more about the Lenovo Headset here. It’s certainly stylish. Unfortunately we won’t get to try it out until the second half of 2018.

 

We browsed through a huge number of videos and application examples in order to compile a list of what we think are the best solutions.

Rez Infinite VR

This game is certainly one of the best showcases for demonstrating what immersive solutions can do. Technically speaking, "immersion" describes the effect caused by VR, which uses visual stimuli to guide the consciousness of the user, allowing them to perceive the virtual environment as real.
