VIRTUAL REALITY, THE NEXT BIG THING

Virtual reality is the next big thing. It is much more different from what people imagined in the 90’s. Virtual reality is actually real and less scary, and most important of all: it is already here, and there is nothing we can do to stop it.

 

First of all, virtual reality is not only a gamers thing anymore. On the contrary, this new booming technology is entering many different markets, from architecture to medicine through military and tourism. NASA is developing VR training centers for astronauts, while doctors and psychologists are trying to cure phobias and autism with virtual reality therapies for children.

 

The first estimations and statistics are impressive: virtual reality is expected to be a very profitable business. According to CSS Insight forecasts, virtual reality and augmented reality market will be worth around $4 billion in 2018! Moreover, more than 24 million virtual reality devices are expected to be sold in 2014 ( CSS Insight ). Within only 3 years, such figures are astonishing, but they help to understand why so many investors are risking huge amounts of money on virtual reality technology.

 

Such a success for virtual reality will only be possible if the technology goes mainstream and finds its place into people’s private life. Even if VR is not exclusively used to play video games and is starting to enter other markets, the crucial step is yet to come: to convince the public to pay hundreds of dollars for this new technology.

 

Indeed, as it is still in development, the first products already available are not really cheap, and you often have to spend several hundreds of dollars for a VR headset such as the Samsung Gear VR, or the Oculus Rift. However, some companies like Google have understood that the price will be a decisive factor for virtual reality to go mainstream.

 

The internet giant has launched a virtual reality headset for smartphones made with a piece of cardboard that everyone can afford. Google Cardboard is a good option for anyone who wants to taste virtual reality for the first time, without being sure to like it. Following that principle, many other brands have started to develop “cheap” virtual reality headsets, so that there will soon be a full range of products for all budgets available on the market.

 

Is the price going to be an essential condition for virtual reality to go mainstream? It probably will. We will have the answer in 2016, which is widely expected to be a milestone year for this new technology.

 

For what we know so far, people are particularly curious about that new cutting-edge technology. According to a survey called “Virtual reality Appetite Index” by YouVisit, 23 million of American adults have already experienced virtual reality and about 30 percent of online Americans aged 18 and over have said being eager to try it. That is encouraging, albeit the issue will be to find a way to make people adopt it, more than just try it. And for what is sure so far, one of the most important drivers in technology is porn.

VIRTUAL REALITY PORN AS A KEY DRIVER FOR TECHNOLOGY

Indeed, porn has always driven technology. From Super 8 films of topless women in the late 50’s to porn websites on the Internet nowadays, through the success of 3-hour porn footage on VHS. Adult entertainment industry has always known to use technology to develop itself, and the same is about to happen with virtual reality.

 

 

As a proof that virtual reality porn follows tech trends, it has first started with porn videos for VR headsets offering a 180-degree view on the sex scene from the point of view of one of the actors. In the meantime, virtual sex chats with 3D holograms and sex VR games and platforms have also been developed. Choose your avatar, customize its appearance and spark your imagination and your dirty desires to do everything you want in virtual reality.

 

Earlier this year, virtual reality porn videos in 360 degrees have emerged: the start-up Virtual Porn 360 has been the first to produce 360 VR porn videos, enabling you to watch anywhere you want all around you in 360 degrees. What’s the point of being able to see all around you? Well, first, the feeling of immersion into the virtual world is reinforced.

 

That is all the point of trying to make virtual reality look more ‘real’: if you turn your head on the right, it looks normal to see what is on your right side in the virtual world, and not seeing the girl in front of you anymore. If you turn your head and your point of view on the girl has not changed as if you had not even moved, it doesn’t seem to be real.

 

But what is the point of turning your head if the girl is just right there in front of you, you might think. Well, what if there were other things to see in the room, like another couple around you, or even several other people having sex in the same room? Once again, if you turn your head and see other things and other people as you would in the real world, the immersion gets better.

 

How can virtual reality porn get adopted by people? Interaction is the key. They need to be able to interact with the virtual world directly, but also with other people in the virtual environment. Simultaneously with virtual reality porn. This is where virtual reality metaverse comes into play, in the future, people will be able to watch virtual porn together or, be able to act and interact in the same virtual porn!

 

Sex accessories are also going along the road of technological innovation. Sex toys are getting connected and becoming wireless: now there are male and female sex toys that caters both genders, and can synchronize their movements when used at the same time, they are advertised as a great solution for couples involved in long-distance relationships.

Moreover, some sex-toys are also connected to virtual reality videos, so that the movements you see in the VR porn movie are reproduced and synchronized with the sex-toy. Again, the goal is to improve the immersion feeling and the interaction with the virtual environment.

 

Another proof that the adult entertainment industry goes along with technology: even sex dolls are getting smarter, as the creators are giving them the ability to talk to the user. All kinds of sex robots are currently in development, and more and more of them are thought to be used along with virtual reality porn videos.

AN OPEN FUTURE FOR Virtual PORN

VR Porn industry is becoming a big thing which is attracting the investors. However, in order to be the key driver which successfully makes the virtual reality technology go mainstream, some issues have to be addressed yet.

 

First, the problem of motion sickness with virtual reality headsets has to be solved. Indeed, a lot of people get sick when they use a VR headset, as there is a difference between what your eyes see and the moves of your body. If you are running in VR but being seated in real life, your brain will have trouble in coordinating the two actions, which will make you feel dizzy or cause headaches. This is an issue that must be addressed entirely in order for virtual porn to be accepted by the masses!

 

Moreover, virtual reality porn has also to improve some elements to be truly convincing. For example, 3D sex holograms can be improve their quality and similarity with human bodies. Moreover, VR Porn videos in 360 degrees are only at their early stages and a lot of improvements will surely be done in the next months.

Of course, the future of virtual reality porn is promising. Virtual reality headsets are getting more powerful, the number of sex toys and other sex robots developed around VR is insanely increasing, and even the technology itself is getting better.

 

Think about all that can be done once the haptic technology is mature enough and enters the virtual reality porn industry. After few improvements virtual reality porn will be a serious and competitive sector. Moreover, there is no doubt there will be an appropriate audience making virtual porn a serious option of entertainment.

 

Imagine you are going home after a long working day and you need to relax and distract yourself from stress. You only have to put your VR headset on and you will get immersed in another world, with anyone you want by your side.

 

You can be on a beach, in a bar with a lot of people around you, in a hotel room, actually anywhere you want, and with the people you want: your girlfriend or wife, a perfect stranger, even several other people and you can let your desires take the lead, do things you would never dare to do in the real world… This is the potential power of virtual porn, you can literally set your sex desire free and unleashed!

 

As said before, contents for an adult public have always been a driver and important factor for the development and expansion of technology, so the future of VR will most probably depend on how well virtual reality porn is developed and distributed.

 

Of course, Virtual Porn has still to be improved, but the professionals of the sector are working hard for that. Virtual Porn opens up a lot of new possibilities, and the future is full of promises.
