While it seems that everyone is jumping on the VR ‘is here now’ train, there are a few who think that we might be peaking too soon.
The immersive world of virtual reality is surely at an advanced state these days. With options such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Playstation VR among others, users can be whisked off to a strange world that looks so realistic, yet so disconnecting.
While this may sound so attractive, lush and the in-thing, it can at times disconnect your body and brain; thereby literally making you sick and feeling nauseated. That’s why NVIDIA’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, believes that virtual reality is still not at its best, a stage that may only be achieved twenty years from now.
Speaking at a press conference before the annual Computex convention, Huang dropped the bombshell that no matter the system used in VR industry, there are still massive problems that need be addressed. According to him, some of the problems to be addressed include:
- The removal of too big VR headsets
- Wires should be a thing of the past
- The world of VR doesn’t abide by the law of physics
- VR experience is just not good enough
While he rightly pointed out the problems, Huang interestingly didn’t provide solutions to these problems. Nonetheless, we hope that his insights will only work in making VR much better in the coming months or years.
