Virtual Reality and the Future of the Internet
So I decided, being in the interactive multimedia focus of our graduating class, that I would show off what the future of the internet and design might look like. So in addition to my portfolio website, I built an interactive virtual reality experience that could be viewed on anyone’s smartphone(And even on desktop)! So I had a bunch of google cardboards built and stamped with my logo ready to hand out to the awesome folks attending. People seemed really enthusiastic and excited about seeing Virtual Reality. Most for the first time! It was an awesome experience. You can even check it out by clicking right here.
Virtual reality is already starting to take off, it’s going to become huge in the next few years. I was lucky enough to get an early Oculus DK1 and experience virtual reality for the first time. I knew right then that this was going to be a big thing in the near future. It’s so exciting right now because it is uncharted territory. There are no rules for design or how things should work. It’s all trial and error. It is kind of like the early internet. Okay, I better stop before I ramble on for the next five hours.
The point is, VR is the future and undoubtedly so is AR. We are soon going to be interacting with our designs in ways we never thought about before. The future is awesome!
