VR and 3D scanning services, part 2
A compatible couple
It’s hard not to mention virtual reality when mentioning 3D scanning service, particularly around young people who have been quite exposed to it, at least as a concept for many years now. For a while it was nothing more than a fantasy, but with 3D scanning services in the mix the possibilities are all too real, and becoming steadily more and more relevant in a world where people want to connect meaningfully through technology. Only good things can come from increasing interactivity with the images that we scan as we may then consider them in a new light and serving other purposes than the ones that we’re accustomed to. When 3D images or maps are just seen on a computer screen they are more likely to be approached as representations that are fairly distant from the observer who is reviewing or manipulating with a mouse. However, imagine how much more we’ve yet to experience from 3D objects that we can download from the net as well as all that we capture using 3D scanning services when we may then experience them virtually with a headset and gloves. We have such a huge interest in computer programs where we may really let our creativity lead the way, like so many do with paint and photoshop, because they invite us to take ideas in new directions that we probably wouldn’t have considered otherwise. A term that’s going to catch a lot of steam in the coming years is augmented reality. This refers to technology that’s able to superimpose computer generated images into someone’s view of the world. The goal often being the construction of what’s called a composite view where you’re welcome to look around just as you would in the real world. As you can probably imagine there are a lot of interesting possibilities, many of which are quite practical. Part of occupational training can involve analyzing and interacting with a virtual environment. One potentiality could be for prospective police detectives to look through a digital crime scene to find clues that will help them solve the case. And the people setting it up could scan objects that were involved in an incident to incorporate it into the training simulation. So it should be noted that both ordinary people and professionals alike stand to gain a great deal from the cooperative efforts being put forth between 3D scanning services and virtual reality. There’s a lot that’s fascinating to ponder and everyone who’s interested should join in the conversation, particularly as we are right now in the early days of broader use of these two very versatile and powerful technologies. Once 3d scanning services and VR really become commonplace across our communities, who knows what will ensue and what will be the biggest tendencies to take over people’s imagination. One thing’s for sure, those that have already tried their hand at 3D scanning services have felt a certain sense of possibilities and self expression that it promotes, especially when scanned images are personalized through program alteration. When you’re then able take the extra step of building your own environment that others are then invite others to experience it, it’s hard not feel as though it’s a pretty big leap. Not only for how it is that we communicate with each other but also how it is that we can represent our world through our environmental choices.What’s sure to happen is for many people to find inner peace through their augmented realities and reveling in the freedom to choose from a selection.
