Hello everyone, Jeremiah Whitaker here. I had a great experience when I went to ATLvr, it was so cool. According to their website, “Virtual reality is at the forefront of emerging technologies. As an immersive and interactive experience, it can bring new life to your product or service presentation. It can also serve as a more personal meeting platform for your organization. Virtual reality can have an application in any industry, which is why ATLvr is here.”
Annie Eaton and Peter Stolmeier were very nice and helpful. Annie believes that vr is great for the community. “Virtual reality is that next major evolution in technology that is going to change lives. We can train doctors to be more accurate, bring people who can't move to places they never dreamed of going, experience things we dreamed about as kids. It has the entertainment value to catch on with the mass public, and the quality level to make a difference and stick around forever,” she said.
Annie and Peter explained how virtual reality works and what it can be used for in the future. One example was that vr can decrease the way bullies treat other people. There could be a vr program that puts bullies in the shoes of their victims. It can at least make them think twice before they act. Peter told me the only problem with the vr simulation was applying different mass to different objects. When I picked items in the simulation every thing weighed the same. Peter also showed the other interns and I how to work the vr system. He gave me tips on editing software for videos to make professional YouTube videos. Annie showed me how to use the vr on the Samsung Galaxy S6. I liked when Annie played the music video on her phone and we watched it through the vr . The music video was cool and it required you to move around in the chair to see all angles of the video.
That was my first time using vr and it was the best. I advise anyone trying to learn about vr to talk to Annie Eaton or Peter Stolmeier at ATLvr about it. They are very friendly and welcoming and will answer any question about vr. I honestly enjoyed myself there. I suggest anyone wanting to learn about vr to visit http://www.atlvr.com.
