A large portion of the virtual reality (VR) industry is focused on entertainment, primarily videogames, but that isn’t all the technology is good for. Alongside augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR), VR could be used by serious enterprises and industries to use this medium to be more productive and enhance their working environments in the near future. That’s what a host of exhibitors will be discussing at the SEA-VR 2015 event later this month.
SEA-VR 2015 has revealed some new exhibitors for the show who are thinking about VR beyond entertainment. Industries like education, medicine, architecture, engineering, real estate, training and defence, among others, have begun to explore the possibilities the technology offers.
At the one day event will be Serious Simulations, who will be launching the Zero Latency Wireless VR Display. The company designs and manufactures professional grade VR training systems with complete human motion interfaces that enable quality training of complex or dangerous tasks for the military, law enforcement, emergency services, infectious disease containment, and commercial/industrial industries.
Representatives from firms Studio 216 and Mortensen Construction, as well as California-based Martin Bros, will be on a panel discussing how VR is impacting Architecture, Engineering and Construction.
Also at SEA-VR 2015 will be Dr. Michael Aratow of San Mateo Medical Center who will be joined by Howard Rose, founder and CEO of DeepStream VR. They will be discussing how the health industry has already started using VR technology to help train doctors, and diagnose and treat patients.
VRFocus will continue to report on any further announcements from SEA-VR 2015 prior to the event on 28th October 2015.
