The technologies that will emerge in the end
The expansion of the coronavirus has generated an unprecedented global crisis.
Surely, not the most pessimistic expected the repercussions caused by the Covid-19.
The streets of the big empty cities, the paralyzed economy, millions of people confined at home ...
In these difficult times, it is important to devote all efforts to staying home, curbing infections and alleviating the health system.
However, it is also necessary to start proposing new strategies to prevent crises like this from happening again 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 ends.
Virtual reality, the definitive tool for teleworking in times of quarantine.
Virtual reality has proven to be the perfect technology to definitively implement teleworking in companies.
Thanks to VR, you can reduce travel and minimize face-to-face meetings, potential sources of contagion.
In addition, it is an excellent tool to offer training professional to workers safe from coronavirus.
The main advantage of virtual reality for professional training is that it allows simulating any scenario quickly, easily and economically.
In this way, for example, an industrial technician can learn and hone his skills with heavy machinery without the risk of accidents.
All this, from the comfort of an office or even at home.
Thus, the possibility of contracting the Covid-19 in a face-to-face training is eliminated.
Just as VR minimizes the risk of contagion in the training of workers, it also does the same with the meetings and conferences.
Virtual reality companies have developed applications perfectly adapted for the remote organization of this type of event.
Unlike video conferencing, VR enables high levels of interaction and non-verbal language between different participants in a remote meeting.
VR in leisure and free time: much more than video games.
Despite the fact that the coronavirus crisis is having serious human, labor and economic consequences, it is important to try to find the positive side of any circumstance, however terrible it may be.
In this case, it only takes a look at social networks to see the least negative side of the quarantine: we have a lot of free time.
And it is that these days it is usual 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 these types of activities, virtual reality also offers interesting solutions that can reduce the risk of contagion when, finally, we can leave the house.
During quarantine, exercising at home has become a necessity for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
However, training at home can be especially boring.
For this reason, many people are likely to return to gyms when the alarm state is lifted.
However, these types of facilities are conducive to the spread of diseases such as Covid-19:
closed spaces, with a lot of activity and in which it is almost impossible to maintain a safe distance.
Also, fitness machines in gyms are foci of infection by themselves.
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.
Maybe not everyone is getting their will to exercise at home.
However, there is a way to distract ourselves that we have all turned to: imagine what we will do as soon as we can leave home.
In this sense, virtual reality has applications to visualize real scenarios from the comfort of the sofa.
This allows users to "visit" in advance tourist destinations We would like to go so that, when we finally have a good trip, we do not leave any attraction to visit.
Augmented reality, the solution to avoid the coronavirus in stores.
In addition to VR, other technologies such as augmented reality They can also help prevent coronavirus once quarantine is lifted.
According to an article published by Health magazine, the coronavirus can survive up to a day in an article of clothing. Although it may not seem too long a period of time, let's think.
How many people enter clothing stores in big cities during the day?
Although in these stores they remove the garments that the others have tried,
What about the clothes that people touch, but that you don't get to try?
The augmented reality agencies They have been developing applications adapted to the needs of retail for some time.
Thanks to this technology, special mirrors have been developed that allow a garment to be superimposed on our body, without the need to put it on.
In this way, we can continue buying our clothes in person, reducing the chances of contracting the Covid-19.
