Next week is the start for CES 2016, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, U.S.A. This gadget and latest technology exhibition features a lot of VR-gear this year.
Oculus Rift will show it’s new consumer version of the Oculus, expected to be released to the public in the first quarter of 2016. The expectations for the other VR producers like HTC together with Valve and Samsung are also high.
With the hardware coming out, it’s yet unknown how VR will impact the applied gaming industry. It can provide a safe learning environment for new employees, or children will be able for example to learn how to deal with busy streets.
The new virtual reality gear will also have to deal with ‘aged’ consoles. A fast refresh rate is needed to make environments realistic as well as to prevent motion sickness. Whatever that will mean for possible new consoles is uncertain.
Fact is, VR is here and it’s here to stay.
