Performance in Virtual Worlds

  1. 1. SAYHELLOTO VIRTUALREALITY A computer-simulated environment that can simulate physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds. Brennan; Karolina; Garnet; Serena LETSPLAY!
  2. 2. KEY POINTS Virtual reality is considered to have wide ranging benefits for the healthcare sector but, it can be used in other sectors as well, which include: • Education • Gaming • Architecture • Military OBJECTIVES
  3. 3. June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 3 AN ARTIFICIAL ENVIRONMENTTHAT IS EXPERIENCEDTHROUGH SENSORY STIMULI VIRTUALREALITY Most Virtual Reality environments are visual experiences, sometimes accompanied by different sounds. The person who is in the virtual world can partially determine what happens within it through their actions. Stimuli in Virtual reality is usually provided by a computer. However there are possible other options. Take us away “ ”
  4. 4. June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 4 VIRTUALREALITY Take us away 3DCOMPUTER ENVIRONMENT 3D computer graphics are graphics that use a three- dimentional representation of geometric data that is stored in the computer for the purposes of performing calculations and rendering 2D images. MMOG’sWORLD OF WARCRAFT Massively Multiusers Online Games or (MMOG’s) such as World of Warcraft create the environment where userc can interact in real time with other users through in text or voice chat. VIDEOEXAMPLE NEXT SLIDE the key features and examples WHATIS VIRTUAL WORLD
  5. 5. appstorm⚡VIRTUALREALITY Take us away
  6. 6. The Virtual World requires the use of avatar for player interaction. This avatar is created to look how you WANT it to look, not how you ACTUALLY look. On the contrary Virtual Reality is using YOU as the active character as the world sees YOU. Your actions directly influence the world around you. I The good example of Virtual World is a MMOG. Unlike the Virtual Reality which is fully enveloped in the world.II Virtual World requires a use of screen. For example a computer, television, tablet or phone screen. Virtual Reality on the other side, is a completely submerging experience. A person involved in Virtual Reality game is no longer in real world of existence III The examples for Virtual World: Second Life; World of Warcraft; Elder Scrolls; etc… The examples for Virtual Reality: Tron; The Matrix (when plugged in) IV VIRTUAL WORLD PRESENTSV VIRTUAL REALITY PRESENTSVI June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 6 VIRTUALREALITY Take us away Versus VIRTUAL REALITY VIRTUAL WORLD
  7. 7. June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 7 VIRTUALWORLDS Take us away Second Life gives users an ineractive game world in which they can explore, but does not provide the same amount of depth and immersion as a virtual reality experience SECOND LIFE Second Life is considered a Virtual World, not a Virtual Reality. Second Life and Games like it seem to be highly misclassified. NEW WORLD
  8. 8. June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 8 VIRTUALREALITY Take us away The Rift is a Virtual reality head- mounted display. The Oculus Rift is planning to be designed for games specifically. Today the Rift is improving head tracking, position tracking, higher resolution and wireless operation. OCULUSRIFT
  9. 9. Example 1 MOBILE AR LIFE WITHIN Google glass is a wearable computer with an optocal head-mounted display. It was developed by Google with a mission of produsing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone- like hnds-free format. Owners comunicate via voice and commands. GOOGLE GLASS VIRTUALREALITY Take us away

  11. 11. FRPG VIRTUALREALITY Take us away PLAY by post game, also known as sim or simming is an online text-based role- playing-game. In which players (writers) interact with each other and a predefined environment via text.

  13. 13. June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 13 VIRTUALREALITYS Take us away Does not have a particular point of origins. It is assumed that it was created by groups of fictionaries in North America, Europe and Australia y HISTORY The participants in LARP physically portray characters in a fictional settings, improvising their characters’ speech and movements. Therefore creating a virtual reality iPLAYOVERVIEW LARPs can have any genre, although many use themes and settings derived from genre fiction. Some LARPs borrow a setting from an established work in another medium. o GENRES Roleplaying may be seen as part of a movment in Western culture towards participatory arts, as opposed to traditional spectator art. LARP is not well known in most other countries. h CULTURE
  14. 14. June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 14 CREATING: EXAMPLE Furry Fandom: A sub culture oriented in creating fictional realitites with anthropomorphic animal characters. 1 REENACTING Is an educational and entertainment activity in which people follow a plan to recreate aspects of a historical event 2 VIRTUALREALITY Take us away COSPLAYING A hobby, where partisipants wear the costumes and fashion accessories to represent specific character or an idea. 3
  15. 15. June 19th, 2014 DRAM 571 15 Virtual Reality has multiple contradicting issues. Many psychiatric therapists belive, that virtual reality causes delusions. It also causes many mental and social problems. 1 VIRTUALREALITY Take us away Virtual Reality has a few ethical issues in regard to virtual environments which need to be addressed. These are related to human behaviour and motivations and are also a concern for the gaming industry. Virtual Reality builds grounds for Virtual Criminality. 3 However Virtual Reality is also used in therapy. Virtual Reality Therapy also known as virtual reality immersion therapy is a method of psychotherapy that uses virtual reality technology to treat patients with anxiety disorders and phobias. 2 Conserns have been raised about a possible relationship between virtual reality and desensitisation. Which means that the person is no longer affected by extreme acts of behaviour such as violence and fails to show empathy or compassion as a result. 4
