“Virtual and Augmented Reality combined with Blockchain, form a set of new promising technological solution”
These young technologies create a lot of curiosity on how they can be both combined and what technological benefits can be reaped out of the collaboration , especially in the gaming and entertainment industry. A decentralized distributed ledger based data storage system can create value to the virtual and augmented reality operations. Even though blockchain is a young technology, it shall soon gain one of the top positions in the mainstream technologies. Visual simulation of objects with real time data experiences is the need of the hour.
Most of the projects that are trying to harness the advantages of both the industries are being developed on ethereum blockchain. An easy-to-understand example can be shopping malls where the trials of clothes can be done standing in front of the mirror , implementing sensors and virtual reality and customers can just within seconds augment how the clothes are looking on them, by looking in the mirror. This data can be then forwarded and the chosen clothes can be billed through the customers’ card and deliveries can be scheduled, all this through the AR/AR and blockchain technological solutions.
Even if Augmented and virtual reality are built on sensors as hardware layers and AI on the software layer, underneath all that lies the data onto which these powerful systems are built. That is where the blockchain can create its magic with data security and making it more powerful than before, leading to a high-value user experience
Benefits of combining AR/VR and blockchain:
Better User Experience:
Not just on gamog and entertainment industry but AR/VR can be classically used everywhere where the user interaction is necessary. This definitely needs sensitive user data to be secure which then blockchain plays its role in. This does not only create new technological advancements but definitely changes user experience for better.
Increased Computing Power:
As AR/VR operate into 3 dimensional experiences , they definitely need a high computational power for execution. Decentralized and distributed graphical systems can share out the workload , which can be possible through blockchain.
As the new systems are being developed, a large number of analysis and decision making comes into picture. Even when the AR/VR are implemented, the data generated underneath the layers are at a risk of insecurity. This major issue can be resolved through blockchain. Blockchain creates a trust worth secure platforms for augmented and virtual reality to work upon.
Transforming the conventional processes:
Talking about enhancing the user experience by multifold, it’s time to make changes to the conventional systems running today. Eliminating the loopholes of the conventional systems by putting the best of technological use, is a smart move indeed. And Blockchain can surely make that happen.
