Sports: Virtual and Augmented Reality Training


Sport VR: The best way to learn is by doing, now open your mind, imagine that you can recreate the scenario you want, adapt it to the needs of your area and explore it through virtual reality.

One of the ways in which virtual reality can be applied in the best way and to the greatest benefit of humanity is as a tool for imparting knowledge,

helping the human being to know and improve their abilities, giving them the opportunity to change the way they are currently trained and qualified.

Most people respond best to a visual learning style,

helps them learn more efficiently and quickly, and this can be achieved with virtual reality.

The graphical nature of this technology coupled with its intuitive interface makes it the ideal vehicle for delivering information.

Virtual reality makeslearning exciting

and challenges the individual in such a way that he or she is forced out of his or her comfort zone within a controlled environment.

The goal is to gain knowledge about their capabilities and aptitudes when facing a given situation.


One of the first uses of virtual reality for training was in the military,

and proved successful in predicting outcomes and improving officer responsiveness.

Simulations are an indispensable learning tool,

as they demonstrate to the individual the true extent of his or her abilities on the firing line.

Virtual reality has multiple ways of being applied, one of them is revolutionizing the world of sports at the moment.

The way athletes are currently trained will be modified to include virtual as a key part of training.

Both the selection process and the internship will include virtual reality exercises.

During these exercises the athletes will have to go through multiple scenarios and tests, which will help them improve their abilities.


VR Matches

When preparing for a match,

coaches will be able to evaluate the performance of their players while executing their strategies,

see how the moves develop and make adjustments (adapt movements, angles).

This gives them the opportunity to improve their strategies and properly assign roles within the game.

But beyond this, it will allow the athlete to train like never before.

Thanks to virtual reality, athletes will make better decisions in their sport,

recognize patterns more easily and improve their ability and speed of reaction.

The hope is that this technology will improve the athlete’s performance in the field.

Goalkeepers are expected to be able to stop more shots, players to complete more passes, among other examples.


VR Basketball

In basketball, players can be seen making shots,

and use virtual reality to improve its launch rate in the future.

It will also help to improve the team’s dynamics,

to predict their behavior in the field and to make the way they interact with each other more efficient.

In fact, many athletes have already started using 360-degree virtual reality goggles.

Both at the professional level and at the university and high school levels.

Coaches and players have experimented with an analysis of practices and games through virtual reality from the first-person angle,

looking for a new perspective.

Virtual reality is a great training tool in sports,

because it replicates what the user sees inside their glasses, on the screen.

This allows the coach to see the athlete’s head movements and the direction they are facing.

Making it possible for you to know if players are using their time well.


There is no place to hide with virtual reality, coaches will be able to evaluate their athletes like never before.

Play by play.

Virtual reality has infinite potential in sport that will only be limited by the human capacity to find ways to apply it.

For now, its use is expected to expand across industries, helping to accelerate the technological evolution of the human race.

In the coming years, virtual reality, like computers and smartphones, will become a mass consumer product.

Transforming life as we know it today from our offices to our homes.
