Have you ever wondered what it would like to walk among dinosaurs, visit the moon, or even tour the Starship Enterprise from the popular television show Star Trek? Well, with the rapid advancements in technology, these types of experiences are becoming more and more possible. With Virtual Reality, you can experience what would otherwise be impossible or difficult explorations, without leaving the comfort of your own home.
One of the most notable projects happening right now in Virtual Reality is a reconstruction of the Starship Enterprise from the Star Trek: Next Generation television show. The recreation will include all 42 levels of the space ship including flight deck, engine rooms, sleeping quarters, and even the dining hall. Users can only explore the space ship through the display devices and can enjoy the freedom to look and move in any direction around the ship.
There has been a lot of press surrounding the advancements in Virtual Reality, and companies are working diligently to create the best working model. It is anticipated that Virtual Reality will soon become another major media in entertainment, along with movies and video games. Whether or not the hardware necessary for these Virtual tours will be accessible to public is unknown, but the idea that it’s out there is still pretty cool.
