In this case, although if it is necessary that the quality glasses’ projection would improve something (it will take very little to be optimal) the current offer of this technology seems pride.
We no longer have to think about environments and visualizations that have to be “cooked” in real time. If we talk about “pre-cooked” images and videos. Therefore, at least at present, the quality of the projected can be infinitely superior since it does not depend on that need of immediate calculation.
The 360º cameras allow the video recording in that format that is directly “viewable” with the different models of glasses. Have not you tried it yet? Do it now!
This experience is not as interactive as visiting the space by the way the recorder decided to do it. However, if you can look around 360º constantly.
Of course I want to think about the architecture and its applications, but after testing the glasses with 360º video there are two niches, apart from the obvious of video games, that come to my mind immediately:
It will not be ever comparable to be there but a door is opened to:
People with few resources
Persons physically handicapped
People with little time
360 VR video experience in Venice
Yes, I know, it is not the same. However, between everything and nothing I would prefer the glasses.
If you think about it, sometimes, the use of glasses may be more enjoyable when you do not have to put up with the rest of the tourists. Imagine that your son has to do homework about the Acropolis.
What do you prefer? Being inspired by the typical photo or let him “turn around” without moving from your room.
I want to fly.I want to wear my glasses with the actual recording of what an eagle is flying, to hang me from a few wires, and finally to light a powerful fan in front of me.
I do not think it necessary to describe the infinite possibilities offered by this field. Being aware, that it is an “industry” with future and budget, the success of this technology is safe.Unfortunately, I predict a death by stroke of many people. The police will find them and say something that will become a classic: “he died with his glasses on.”
In regards to the visit of existing spaces, their possibilities seem unlimited.I imagine a whole class of architecture students with their glasses visiting the interior of Sagrada Familia.
The problem begins to arise when what we want to “visit” does not exist. Then, you have to calculate it with the computer. This means that you have to calculate an animation with a resolution similar to 4k and of course, that is within the reach of very few. We meet again with the bottleneck of software and hardware.An alternative that maintains a high quality standard is the making of images instead of animation, but of course, that is not that cool.
