Technologies that will emerge at the end of quarantine

The spread of the coronavirus has generated an unprecedented worldwide crisis.

Even the most pessimistic pessimists probably did not expect the repercussions caused by Covid-19.

The streets of the big cities are empty, the economy is paralyzed, millions of people are confined to their homes…

In these difficult times, it is important to make every effort to stay at home, curb contagion and relieve the healthcare system.

However, it is also necessary to start considering new strategies to prevent crises like this one from recurring in the future.

In this sense, new technologies such as virtual reality or augmented reality offer multiple solutions to minimize the risk of contagion once the quarantine is over.

Virtual reality, the ultimate tool for teleworking in times of quarantine.

Virtual reality has proven to be the perfect technology to implement telework in companies in a definitive way.

Thanks to VR, travel can be reduced and face-to-face meetings, potential sources of contagion, can be minimized.

In addition, it is an excellent tool for providing professional training to workers safe from the coronavirus.

The main advantage of virtual reality for professional training is that it allows any scenario to be simulated quickly, easily and economically.

In this way, for example, an industrial technician can learn and perfect his skills with heavy machinery without the risk of accidents.

All this, from the comfort of an office or even your home.

This eliminates the possibility of contracting Covid-19 in classroom training.

Just as VR minimizes the risk of contagion in employee training, it does the same for meetings and conferences.

Virtual reality companies have developed applications perfectly adapted to the remote organization of this type of events.

Unlike videoconferencing, VR allows for high levels of interaction and nonverbal language between the different participants in a remote meeting.

VR in leisure and free time: much more than video games.

Although the coronavirus crisis is having serious human, labor and economic consequences, it is important to try to look for the positive side of any circumstance, no matter how terrible it may be.

In this case, it only takes a glance at social networks to see the less negative side of quarantine: we have a lot of free time.

These days it is common to see how our friends and acquaintances publish their exercises at home or plan the first trip they make once the quarantine is lifted.

For this type of activity, virtual reality also offers interesting solutions that can reduce the risk of contagion when we can finally leave the house.

During the forties, exercising at home has become a necessity to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

However, training at home can be particularly boring.

For this reason, it is likely that many people will return to gyms when the state of alarm is lifted.

However, such facilities are conducive to the spread of diseases such as Covid-19:

closed spaces, with a lot of activity and where it is almost impossible to keep a safe distance.

In addition, fitness machines in gyms are sources of infection in their own right.

To solve this problem, virtual reality developers have created applications that allow the user to exercise while enjoying fully immersive and interactive experiences.

In this way, they make training at home a much more bearable and entertaining activity.

Not everyone may be getting their willpower to exercise at home.

However, there is one way to distract ourselves that we have all resorted to: imagining what we will do as soon as we can leave the house.

In this sense, virtual reality has applications to visualize real scenarios from the comfort of the sofa.

This allows us to “visit” in advance the tourist destinations we would like to go to so that, when we can finally enjoy a good trip, we do not miss any attraction to visit.

Augmented reality, the solution to prevent coronavirus in stores.

In addition to VR, other technologies such as augmented reality can also help in prevention against coronavirus once the quarantine is lifted.

According to an article published by Health magazine, the coronavirus can survive up to one day in a piece of clothing. Although it may not seem like a very long period of time, let’s think about it.

How many people enter clothing stores in large cities throughout the day?

Although in these stores they remove the garments that have been tried on by others,

what about the garments that people touch, but don’t get to try on?

Augmented reality agencies have been developing applications tailored to retail needs for some time.

Thanks to this technology, special mirrors have been developed that make it possible to superimpose an article of clothing on our body, without the need to put it on.

In this way, we can continue to buy our clothes in person, reducing the chances of contracting Covid-19.
