Virtual Reality at Gelardin

Why Is VR Important?

VR has infinite uses in entertainment, education, medicine, military, and more. People can play immersive video games, practice dangerous military maneuvers, and simulate extremely complex surgeries by simply putting on a headset and entering a virtual reality. Users can go on a roller coaster, and even fly through space without leaving a room. VR provides the ability to be in places you aren't or even places that do not exist. This allows us to do research that might have been otherwise dangerous or impossible. The ability to virtually walkthrough any museum in the world or on the surface of Mars is unprecedented. Virtual Reality technology still has a ways to go, but Gelardin aims to be at its forefront.
