Internet delivery projects for remote areas or those affected by natural disasters were not the highlight of the Facebook developers’ conference in April. The company unveiled a number of projects, notably those specializing in virtual and enhanced reality.
Facebook’s virtual reality effort is not new. It acquired Oculus Rift, a virtual reality glasses producer almost two years ago, and has continually improved the 360-degree video sharing.
In addition, during the last conference, the company also unveiled Space, the first virtual social network to be accessed with Oculus glasses only now.
In general, virtual reality glasses have driven the user towards isolation from society because he puts it and moves to another world. This is exactly the opposite of the social experience we are experiencing through applications such as Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, as well as WhatsApp, Snapchat, and many more. But Facebook has another view of a whole new social network.
After putting the glasses on and running the application of the specs the user will move to a new reality and have a table on the beach. Then friends can be invited to join this reality so that their avatar images (Avatars) are displayed and the glasses actually capture their movement and mimic within the Spacees to offer a unique feature.
While in reality, you can play a video and show it to friends, take a group photo, or use the tools you provide, like a drawing brush. When you use a hat, for example, you can grab the hat later and put it on the head, attached with glasses.
Users within MySpace can interact with posts on Facebook, and the user can view his friends’ latest posts as if he were using the computer. The user will not lose anything, but the network will enhance social experience on the Internet.
The current version of Spaces accommodates up to three users together at the same time. So that the current features are few. But certainly, Mark Zuckerberg’s ambitions will not stand there and we will see other uses with tools that will make the experience both enjoyable and useful.
Apart from Facebook, the uses of such a network may be very good in the field of education. Many universities offer remote certificates. Using virtual reality, the process can be improved and students are encouraged to engage in such initiatives. The medical field can also benefit from this network. Rehabilitation kits, for example, can now be carried out on the Internet away from embarrassment or embarrassment, which may be the main factors behind a person’s not having such things.
But far from those areas, are there other uses that you think might be useful if you rely on platforms like Spaces?
