VR Shopping at Walmart

Retail giant Walmart is filing for patents that imply its dedication to VR being apart of its business strategy in the future.

Imagine, entering a virtual store from the comfort of your living room. You can travel up and down the aisles, grab items and put them in your cart. At the end, you check out just like you normally would, and your products are shipped to you later that week.

That is the future that Walmart envisions for its customers. Just another way that VR is being deeply integrated into the fabric of our society.

Industrial VR

VR has proven to serve many functions other than for typical consumer purposes.
Learn how Industrial VR is changing the way that companies can interact with customers. In this example, water solutions provider Xylem Inc., uses VR to help its customers weigh their options for products that they may have difficulty understanding. They do this by creating visualizations that make things easier for the common consumer to understand.

VR of Hiroshima

August 6, 1945. The U.S. dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, and 3 days later, dropped another on Nagasaki to end World War 2.

Now, exactly 73 years later, students in Japan have 3D modeled the cities to be viewed in VR/360. “Even without language, once you see the images, you understand. That is definitely one of the merits of this VR experience,” said one viewer about the experience.

VR’s powerful immersion can help us gain empathy. This experience will undoubtedly keep the memory of this tragic event alive so it can be shared with future generations allowing them to understand the power of nuclear warfare.
