Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality Headsets, Smartphones, and More
It’s your world, only better.
A decade ago, smartphones gave us the first real taste of what it’s like to live in the future. With a computer in our pocket that could connect to the internet, play our favorite songs, show us our favorite movies, and let us communicate with anyone in the world, it was like a Star Trek device made real.
But you ain’t seen nothing yet – literally! Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are here, and they offer an entirely new way of interacting with games, 3D simulations, and the real world, using head-mounted accessories and hand controllers. Though these AR and VR headsets might look a little odd, the experience of using them will quickly banish any fashion concerns you might have. Get ready to discover a whole new world!
AR/VR Headsets: From Lightsaber Duels to Interior Decorating
Imagine being able to reach out and pick up a Lightsaber off your coffee table, and fight an AR lightsaber duel to the death with Darth Vader, right in your living room. Or being able to design a new home in 3D and look at every wall, countertop, or window, walking through it in real time. With virtual reality and augmented reality rigs connected to VR- or AR-enabled Lenovo devices and smartphones, you can do both of these activities (and way more).
Virtual reality uses a computer to create a completely artificial world, which you can see and interact with using a mixed VR headset – like the Lenovo Explorer -- and a hand controller(s). The same technology can be used to create Mixed Reality – a view of your real world, but with the addition of virtual objects that look and act just like real ones. If you’ve ever wanted to know how it would feel to have a new dining room table in your dining room, mixed reality lets you virtually see it and walk around it, without ever leaving home.
AR Smartphones & Tablets
You don’t always need to don a headset to get the augmented or mixed reality experience. Smartphones and tablets, like the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, can give you a slightly less immersive version of AR by letting you hold the device in front of you, using the large screen to see a combination of what the rear cameras are capturing, and the virtual information added by the software. It’s the perfect tool for interior designers, real estate agents, or anyone who wants an AR experience in the palm of their hand.
With virtual reality and augmented reality, you can step into the future, today.
