Virtual reality is now such a common feature in our day to day lives that we don’t need to look away from our phones, almost all the games and even YouTube offers the VR experience at no extra cost but just a cheap pair of glasses. The development of this technology in the past is that of unprecedented growth, and the sophistication with which this technology has entered the mainstream market is one to note. Virtual reality games are used to train players, pilots, drivers and anyone else that needs to know how to do their job to perfection without actually getting on the physicalities of their ride for it may possess real-life dangers as in the case of drivers and pilots who have a lot at stake once they enter the cockpit and cannot afford to make mistakes.
This technology is also incorporated in the entertainment business with all the gaming zones having a VR zone, and people go there to experience what this new piece of technology feels like, similarly the incorporation of this field in modern medicine and scientific fields is immense and the contributions are as fruitful as ever. Medical students can perform surgery without actually having a patient on the table and thus reducing the risks involved if a doctor made a mistake though accidental but a mistake. Such technologies are useful for nation-building, especially when we have the highest numbers of doctors and engineers passing out of our university every year
