为玩家而生的VR - Oculus Quest

VR赶上公众的步伐很慢。它很昂贵,并且需要一些技术知识和装备才能参与。 Quest可能是最终将VR带入美国每个家庭的那个系统。与较早的高端VR设置不同,Oculus的最新设备无需连接到PC或需要任何外部电线,其具有VR功能的控制器和内置运动跟踪摄像头可让您安全地在房间内移动并让玩家自己完全沉浸参与游戏或体验内容。设置Quest,您只需戴上耳机,在所使用的房间内绘制一个虚拟的安全边界,然后进行操作即可。一旦进入游戏中,可能性几乎是无限的。您可能会发现自己身处一群欢呼的人群包围的拳击台中,在星球大战(Star Wars)的世界中追求使命,或者在Beat Saber中用刀剑砍音乐。如此沉浸式的体验以至于摘下耳机后,您可能会惊讶地发现您一直都在同一个房间中。全套产品的起价为399美元,低于该级别的其他VR耳机。消费者显然会为此买单:Quest在5月份发布产品已经全部售罄;并且仅在最初的两周内,Oculus售出了超过500万美元的Quest应用和游戏。

英文原文:VR has been slow to catch on with the general public; it’s expensive, and there’s been a need for some tech knowledge and accoutrements to participate. The Quest might be the system that finally brings virtual reality into every home in America. Unlike older high-end VR setups, Oculus’ newest device doesn’t connect to a PC or require any external wires, and its VR-­enabled controllers and built-in motion-­tracking cameras allow you to safely move around a room and fully immerse yourself in games or experiential content. To set up the Quest, you just put on the headset, draw a virtual safety boundary in the room you’re using and jump into the action. Once inside, the possibilities are nearly limitless. You could find yourself in a boxing ring surrounded by a cheering crowd, pursuing a mission in the world of Star Wars or sword slashing to the music in Beat Saber. The experiences are so immersive that after taking off the headset, you might be stunned to realize you’ve been in the same room the whole time. A full set starts at $399—less than other VR headsets at this level. Consumers are clearly on board: the Quest had a sold-out release in May, and in just the first two weeks, Oculus sold more than $5 million of Quest apps and games.

Osso VR虚拟手术平台

当涉及培训时,虚拟现实对于初入职场的司机、飞行员甚至外科医生来说会大有用途。 Osso VR软件旨在为医生提供虚拟的手术室体验。 Osso VR的联合创始人兼首席执行官Justin Barad博士说:“即使经过四年的大学学习,四年的医学院学习和五年的住院医生实习期,仍然有30%的毕业生仍然无法独立做手术,这太疯狂了”。 Osso VR现在正在美国各地的医院中使用,不久之后,坦桑尼亚、柬埔寨和埃塞俄比亚等不发达国家医疗中心的外科医生将足不出户向世界各地的领先专家学习。

英文原文:Virtual reality can be extremely useful when it comes to ­training—­for first-time drivers, pilots and even surgeons. The Osso VR software is designed to give doctors a virtual operating-­room experience. “Even after four years of college, four years of medical school and five years of residency on average, 30% of graduates still cannot operate on their own,” says Dr. Justin Barad, co-founder and CEO of Osso VR. “That’s insane.” Osso VR is now being used in hospitals around the U.S., and soon surgeons in health centers in underdeveloped countries, such as Tanzania, Cambodia and Ethiopia, will also be able to learn from leading experts from around the world without having to leave their hospitals.
