Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies have gotten a lot of attention over the past few years.The future of VR could be our next computing platform mainly used for gaming, filmmaking, or other entertainment content.

It offers a new way of seeing our world.VR is limited to a user's visual and auditory senses, but in the future this will likely be enhanced.

1. VR Technology can generate your realistic 3D Avatar from a single selfie
The fast growing Virtual reality technology has created a market for realistic 3D avatars that can allow users to represent themselves online. Right now few companies are providing that option of creating 3D avatars. But they need too many cameras and require expert level post-production skills.

Now a San Francisco based startup named "" enables a new era of virtual communication by automatically converting selfies into expressive 3D avatars. The core technology leverages’s deep expertise in computer vision and machine learning combined with VFX magic to create life-like human face visualizations.

The animatable and expressive faces can be used to power applications in VR, gaming, messaging, e-commerce and virtual classrooms for individuals and businesses around the world.

2. Virtual Reality to Android app. Watch Any YouTube Video In Google Cardboard
YouTube has added support for Virtual Reality videos to its Android app.YouTube made this announcement in its blog post which gives details about two new VR features of YouTube’s Android app.

The first announcement is, YouTube now supports VR video—a brand new kind of video that makes you feel like you’re actually there. Using the same tricks that we humans use to see the world, VR video gives you a sense of depth as you look around in every direction. Near things look near, far things look far. So if you were excited about 360° videos, this is pretty cool.

The second news is for the universe of existing YouTube content. You can now watch any YouTube video using Google Cardboard, and experience a kind of virtual movie theater. Just select the new “Cardboard” option from the watch page menu, drop your phone into your viewer, and you’re done.

3. MIT's MoVR allows Gamers to use any VR Headset Wirelessly
Fortunately, researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have recently unveiled a prototype system called “MoVR” that allows gamers to use any VR headset wirelessly.

In tests, the team showed that MoVR can enable untethered communication at a rate of multiple Gbps, or billions of bits per second. The system uses special high-frequency radio signals called “millimeter waves” (mmWaves) that many experts think could someday help deliver blazingly-fast 5G smartphones.

4. This VR could walk Doctors through the Patient’s Body
Engineers at GE Healthcare’s Global Center of Excellence in Medical Imaging Software in France, used detailed 3D information from CT and MRI body scans to build a virtual experience complete with color, texture, light and other features.This VR could walk Doctors through the Patient’s Body.

Doctors can use it to observe the glistening pleura of the lungs or ashen pink matter of the brain. They can also “enter” a specific part of the body and closely examine it for things like polyps, tumors and lesions.

5. Tilt Brush is Google's Virtual Reality (VR) Painting App for HTC Vive to paint in 3D
Google has released "Tilt Brush", a 3D painting app for the Virtual Reality headset "HTC vive" . Tilt Brush lets you paint in 3D space with virtual reality. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless.

i-e Tilt Brush is a Virtual Reality Tool that paints the space all around you. Tilt Brush was created by VR studio Skillman & Hackett before being acquired by Google

With Tilt Brush, you can paint in three-dimensional space. Just select your colors and brushes and get going with a wave of your hand. Your room is a blank slate. You can step around, in and through your drawings as you go. And, because it’s in virtual reality, you can even choose to use otherwise-impossible materials like fire, stars or snowflakes.
