VR technology may soon replace conference calls

As technology continues its rapid advance, tech companies will have to come up with newer, better ways to streamline day-to-day office processes.

The next big thing? Virtual reality business meetings.

One expert said that businesses could potentially be looking at it as a viable option for business meetings within the next two years.

“I think they may soon be extremely realistic and convincing,” Andrew Glennester, professor of visual neuroscience at Reading University, told Mail Online.

“You will all feel that you are in the same room as other people,” he added.

He said that the technology will be so advanced that even eye contact and handshaking will be as realistic as if you were all in the same room.

“It is quite hard to think of an aspect of meeting in real life that will not be transferred to virtual reality,” he said, adding that there is an ongoing effort to make the haptics work well.

Some VR developers, however, still believe that conference calls will remain a popular choice. One hurdle they foresee is the cost of VR technology.

“I definitely can see VR becoming widely used for the purposes of collaborative working … but I doubt it will replace cheaper conferencing technology where visual content is not important,” said Jonathan Wagstaff, head of VR division at IT supply chain company, Context.

  22. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  23. I have been browsing online more than three hours these days, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty price enough for me.
