Though virtual reality technology has been around for almost two decades, hardware and software developers are still working to resolve VR-related nausea and motion sickness. Researchersbelieve that VR-related nausea is caused by sensory conflict, or a dissonance between what your eyes see on screen and the motion (or lack thereof) your body feels. One study found thatadding a virtual nose to VR scenes can reduce negative physical effects, and companies like Oculus are trying to combat nausea withimproved hardware. Fortunately, there are steps we can take to minimize or even eliminate VR motion sickness, whether you’re using Google Cardboard or a more advanced headset. Here are some tips for maximizing your comfort while watching VR:
We had a wonderful time at Tuesday night’s Kaleidoscope VR Film Festival in Dumbo. If you haven’t tried this technology, we can’t stress enough how incredible it is. As we await the arrival of the final consumer version of the Oculus Rift in 2016, VR enthusiasts are gathering all over New York and across the country to discuss the latest business, social, medical, and entertainment applications of Virtual Reality. Here’s a roundup of VR events happening in the coming weeks:
Congratulations to Sofia Falleroni on going into contract on 1 Morton Square after only 3 days on the market! Sofia uses floorplanGRP's Virtual Open Houses as a way of reaching her mostly international clientele because buying an apartment is often a family decision, but entire families cannot always make the trip to take a tour. Virtual Open Houses make it possible to see a NYC home from Italy, China, or wherever a client may be. Take a tour of 1 Morton Square, Apt 11DW, a beautiful 2,000 SF 3 BR with peaceful views on the waterfront in the West Village. Congratulations again to Sofia and to Town Residentiall!

While virtual reality technology has long been associated with gaming, we are starting to see more and more potential uses pop up. One of the most intriguing VR applications is in job training. From the military to the medical field, VR technology is allowing trainees to practice high-stakes procedures in a risk-free environment. Here’s a look at some of the industries that are using VR to train professionals.
You may be wondering how we put together our 3-D visualizations and virtual walk-through tours. For those outside the graphic design world, 3-D graphics are somewhat of a mystery. We thought it would be interesting to provide a quick primer on how 3-D graphics work.
While we’re waiting for the Oculus Rift to hit the mass market, devices like Google Cardboard are allowing us to experience virtual reality (VR) with the help of our smartphones. As a result, we’re seeing a lot of VR apps for iPhone and Android pop up. Other developers are using VR technology to create “augmented reality” apps. Augmented reality, or AR, is a technology that superimposes a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, providing a composite view. AR apps don’t require headgear, so they’re an inexpensive way to get a taste of the the VR experience. Here are some of the best virtual reality and augmented reality apps out right now:
Palmer Luckey, creator of Oculus Rift and founder of the Oculus company, was the cover story for Time magazine’s August 17th issue.
