Augmented and virtual reality.
Previously, different fields used a number of ways to assist in their research or projects. For health-related studies, cadavers and “Geanie pigs” were used to conduct the experiment. For the military, actual detonations and trial attack were done to project the effectiveness of their equipment. The list goes on with different fields using the environment to do their experiments. These activities posed a threat to our surroundings which created the need for a platform that would facilitate progress in different studies and research while preserving what’s left of the environment. It brought about the creation of a virtual reality, that projects the real world objects and simulated the events caused by real changes. Augmented and virtual reality is now used by surgeons to perform risky operations and test the outcome without involving the actual person.
