Virtual Reality gaming lessons learnt
To understand the role of AR, we need to first look at virtual reality (VR) gaming. Today, gamers have the option of playing video games in an immersive 360-degree experience through a wide range of VR devices, ranging from high-end PC and game console headsets to low-cost, smartphone-powered goggles. It would seem that VR is the next step in the gaming evolution, but so far VR gaming has hardly made a dent in the overall gaming ecosystem. A lack of affordable, high-quality VR headsets is one reason, and a lack of good VR games is another. The cables tethering high-end headsets with a PC or game console is another challenge.
