Virtual Reality has had a massive impact on standard and serious gaming applications across all industries. VizExperts has been in the Virtual Reality Industry for over 10 years. We have been providing serious gaming solutions across the armed forces and governmental organisations with Virtual Reality being a key component in the varied services we have provided. The Oculus Rift has been one of the first real semi Portable Virtual Reality Headset that we have worked with.
Human Senses act as receptors for the Brain to communicate with the external environment. Virtual Reality enables the brain to communicate with a computer generated environment through the use of certain mediums. The Oculus Rift is one such Virtual Reality headset which by the use of Sensors allows the brain to connect with a Virtual surrounding.
Very powerful Graphic Processors are required to run Virtual Reality successfully. As of right now in a commercial point of view only gamers possess the required specifications to use Virtual Reality. It is for this reason Virtual Reality has been introduced as a technology generally suited for the Gaming Industry. However there are no actual limitations as to what one can achieve with this technology as of now.
One such application is in the creation of serious gaming concepts especially in the training and planning sectors. Just imagine how much our defence and security sectors can improve with the introduction of realistic on ground training applications with the help of Virtual Reality Technology. This Virtual Reality headset gives a big boost towards successfully introducing game based learning in all our training and planning sectors, not limited to just defence.
The Oculus Rift is one of the more refined versions of a Virtual Reality Headsets, far surpassing the likes of its predecessors. It employs an OLED panel on each eye with a resolution of 1080×1200 per eye. With a refresh rate of 90 hz and coming with inbuilt headphones. It comes with a 6 degree of freedom tracking system.
VizExperts has worked with VR from its nascent stages where a standard headset costed around $100,000 to the very latest model priced at only $800. The Oculus Rift is a highly advanced and economical choice when it comes to VR headsets.
Gurugram-based startup VizExperts launched its revolutionary product Digital Sand Model, an integrated comprehensive 3D GIS solution deployed successfully in the Border Security Force Headquarter, New Delhi, 2011. The company works in the realm of 3D graphics and geospatial intelligence by providing integrated products with combining technologies such as 3D GIS, 3D Graphics, simulation and gaming.
The problem it solves? When armed forces are flown from different regions to handle security operations in unknown terrains such as the recent Pathankot operation, it is extremely crucial for them to have accurate information of their own assets as well as that of your enemy— where their weapons are stationed, their movements etc. This is only possible through advanced technology solutions, however Bhaniramka found that although the army buys a lot of such technologies, but adoption is a huge challenge. “First, the armed forces are not IT savvy and often these products are so complex that they need to spend a month-long training to get started with the product,” he says.
With the Digital Sand Model, the defense personnel on a 32 inch PC, can locate their enemy, their assets etc, and plan their moves even before they reach there, resulting in significant saving of resources,” says Mr. Praveen Bhaniramka, Co-founder & CEO, VizExperts.
