When we were kids, we had the most active imaginations. In times of need, whether it was from sadness, boredom, or a need for adventure, we were able to make up stories that became alternate realities. We would give power to these realities by acting them out, putting pen to paper, or simply by voicing our thoughts aloud to the closest person who would listen to us.
As we have gotten older over the years, some of us have been holding out hope that those realities exist somewhere, to experience them even. With the millions, if not billions, of dollars companies are pouring into research and development of immersive reality technology, we are getting closer to experiencing those realities.
For those of you who have not heard of the term “immersive reality,” imagine combining your imagination with quality graphic design, storytelling, and present-day technology. What does that make you think of? Does it make you think of your favorite movie or video game? Maybe a Superbowl commercial? If you were thinking of something along those lines, you were probably still wondering how any of those things relate to immersive reality.
Now, believe it or not, all of those things you thought of count as a form of immersive reality. It has been years in the making, but over the past decade, immersive reality has made many strides. As of now, it is defined as the presentation of an artificial environment that replaces the users’ real world environment, suspends their disbelief, and fully engages them.
Immersive reality has many forms of representation, but there are two types with the most potential in the near future: augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). Augmented reality superimposes a computer-generated image on a user’s view of the real world while virtual reality is a simulated environment that allows user interaction through special electronic equipment.
Here are some examples of each type of immersive reality:
- Augmented Reality: Pokemon Go, Augmented Try-On Dressing Rooms, Dimensional Fit Kitchen Remodeling
- Virtual Reality: Job Orientation Training, Phobia Treatment, Experimental Medical Procedure Testing
