Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality is gaining in popularity. Now VR needs to make the transition from entertainment to utility. At Arishi, we are experienced at uniting creative ideas with profitable business process. We'd love to show you our most recent work and explain how our use of advanced technology enables us to offer a fully immersive, physical experiences which can be quickly updated. We invite you to explore with us how VR can be turned into a successful learning, e-commerce and brand-building experience.


01 Virtual Reality

What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality (VR) is an artificial environment where users can feel immersed in a three-dimensional world. Powered by sophisticated software and hardware such as headsets like the Oculus Quest, Sony PlayStation VR, Varjo VR and XR, Valve Index and HTC's Vive, VR can transport your users to entirely simulated environments that can be gamified, educational, military or training oriented, among many others.

There are two types of VR: three Degrees of Freedom and six Degrees of Freedom. Degrees of Freedom, or 'DoF', refers to how you move in a virtual environment with the use of a VR headset and additional hardware (controllers, VR gloves, processors, smartphones, etc).

  • Three Degrees of Freedom: is usually limited to head movements (up and down, left to right and side to side). With three Degrees of Freedom, it’s only possible to rotate your head but not move around. Interacting with your environment is not directly possible with this type of VR. There are ways that you can simulate this – albeit in a way that isn’t entirely natural.
  • Six Degrees of Freedom: is a more sophisticated version of VR and combines the rotation of the above with movement (front/back, up/down, and left/right). With six Degrees of Freedom, you can move around in any direction in a virtual space.
02 Differences

The Difference Between Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Though they may sound similar, there are distinctive differences between Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality (AR). In Virtual Reality, users are isolated from the real world and inserted into a 3D environment. Whereas AR technology recognises a 3D object in the real world (known as a “marker”) and can attach an image or animation to the marker. AR may use geo-positioning to understand its location in real-time and maps useful information over the screen and can be accessed by a digital device such as a smartphone or tablet. Learn more about the difference in our AR/VR brochure.
