Virtual Reality Technology

To say that virtual reality technology has finally arrived would not quite be correct, but it is closer than ever. Let’s take a look at this new and developing advancement in our lives.

Virtual reality technology has taken our fantasies and is trying to make them real-or at least, as real as a computer can simulate. That you can stand (or sit) in your own living room and take a virtual tour of ancient Rome, or have your golf swing analyzed is just short of a technological miracle.

Today’s scientists are working on developing the most realistic 3D simulated worlds they can, using virtual reality technology. Computers, combined with special interfacing peripherals, are capable of simulating any environment written into its programs.

Basically, the requirements for such a simulated environment require that the computer and its peripherals be able to project a 3D world that looks at real as possible to the user. It is also necessary that the programs be able to track the user’s movements, using that information to adjust the environment accordingly, to give the user a sense of total immersion into his virtual environment.

The degree to which a user feels completely immersed in the virtual environment is called telepresence. Along with being able to interact with the environment, telepresence in virtual reality technology is the standard by which this advancement is measured. A successful telepresence will give the user a sense that he is no longer in his own world, and will have to cooperate and interact with his new environment.

Therefore, the quality of the display is vital. Image resolution and sound quality are the primary systems with the most focus on them in virtual reality technology. But there are scientists working on other sensory feedback systems. User force feedback, called haptic systems, is the event whereupon a user can reach out and touch a virtual object and receive computerized feedback that actually makes the user feel a corresponding sensation. This is the newest element of development in the virtual reality technology world.

For example-about that golf swing analysis we mentioned earlier. Using an actual golf club, the user feels it in his hands, but what he sees, when he looks at it, will be a virtual representation of the golf club. That is one way scientists are using haptic systems to give the sensation of full immersion into a 3D world.

The peripherals used in virtual reality technology become an important factor in giving the user the ability to interact with his 3D world. Such peripherals, like data gloves and omni-directional treadmills, body suits, headsets and joysticks are but a few of the devices in common use today as part of the experience.

The financial implications of virtual reality technology is astounding. Virtual reality technology is not limited to games and theater. With this capability, it will be possible to create products virtually and make changes to them without having to actually build and scrap them. Medical, educational and businesses the world over stand to make great strides in their respective fields when the costs of research and development are reduced through the use of virtual reality technology.

The Innovative Information Technology

The fast paced technological world has globalised the world into one compact unit as you just need to click around and access the whole wide world. There sure is no doubt that we are moving forward at a very high speed and the advanced internet and computer applications have helped to ease our workload.

Computer’s have become a way of life for us as we simply can’t do with it. IT helps you in your online grocery shopping and booking a holiday package as it is ready to shoulder all your burdens and get your jobs done in a fast processed ways with its innovative applications.

Our lives and our business rely on the survival of IT and communication which is done through internet and emails and it has also made it easy for us to communicate around the world and get our work processed within a short time.

We should all try to know the basics of IT as this is the way of life that will help us to step forward with a positive attitude and take the world by storm. IT training is an important aspect of our education in this advanced technological world.

There are various training courses that will teach you and keep you updated on the latest innovative IT news as this way you will be successful in carrying out your business activities keeping track of all the ups and down in the market and will also be able to make the right decisions.

iPad Is the Best in the Technological World of Computers

Tablet computers are not a new phenomenon since they have been in existence for about 20 years. They recorded very low sales until Apple hit the market with the iPad in April 2010. The iPad became popular within a short time thereby turning tablet computers into a key product category. This might have been attributed to its close resemblance to Apple’s iPhone which had already gained popularity. The two products ran on the same operating system.

These types of computers are crucial when it comes to electronic simplicity. They are very convenient in terms of portability, with a few in-built controls and save for flat touch screen interface; tablet computers are beautiful and user-friendly.

Competition ensued not long after iPad hit the market; before then, Google had launched an open-source operating system for smart phones known as Android which made it easy for the upgrade of tablet computers. This came in the wake of Apple having upgraded the iPad’s iOS operating system. The first version intended for use was Android 3.0 operating system which was also dubbed “Honeycomb” and Motorola released the first Android tablet named Xoom in February 2011.

Android tablets, just like the iPad, have a touch-screen interface, making it easy for the user to activate icons by simply tapping a finger on them. A swiping gesture of the user’s hands moves objects around and gets screens scrolled. Apple and various Android manufacturers provide an online marketplace where (programs) mobile apps can be bought and directly downloaded on the device. Android tablets are more or less the same as iPads such that a user who is not well acquainted with the two can easily confuse one for the other at a casual glance.

So there arises a difficult question: Which is one is the most suitable? iPads are made by Apple only and in two versions – iPad and the iPad 2. However, any company capable of manufacturing hardware that can sustain Google’s operating system can produce an Android tablet and obviously, there are some companies that are capable of producing the best. In fact, a number of companies tend to disguise their inferior quality Android tablets. One can easily make out the difference between the iPad and other representative Android tablets.

By the time Xoom was introduced into the market, it was evident that Motorola was out to outpace the specs on the iPad. This led to the shipping of a dual main processor which allowed the software to double its speed to equal that one of the iPad. Also, inclusive was a 5-mega pixel camera which was installed facing in front and a 2-mega pixel camera facing the opposite side (backward) in order to enable video chatting for the user.

Indeed, this was an exciting achievement especially for those who had been let down by the failure of Apple to include a camera in its pioneer iPad. Xoom came with a 10.1-inch screen, slightly bigger than the one on the iPad and the display (1280×800) provided quite a high level of graphics resolution. This model has a 32-gigabyte memory which can also be expanded with the aid of Secure Digital (MicroSD) cards.
