360° immersive technology will revolutionize how we consume sports, entertainment, news, and other digital content. Existing VR headsets are great at letting consumers experience content as if they’re looking through a window into another world. But if you really want to transport your audience into your virtual world and make it part of their reality, then a headset isn’t quite enough.

1. It feels more natural

Just imagine you have been whisked away to an exciting new universe you never knew existed, like nowhere you’ve ever been before. It all looks real, and it all sounds real. But somehow, it doesn’t feel real…because you have to bear the weight of a giant, heavy pair of goggles around your head that you’d never usually wear.

When you’re in a 360° projection environment, there’s no need to put on a clunky headset. You’re not tuning out the outside world to look through the lenses of a virtual world. Your outside world becomes virtual.

2. It engulfs your peripheral vision

Head-mounted displays currently offer a limited field of view. Sure, your perspective of the virtual world changes as you turn your head, but you still only really get to see what’s directly in front of you, as if you’re looking through a giant pair of ski goggles. This is because conventional VR headsets block a lot of your peripheral vision.

The average human has a visual field of around 170°, and your peripheral vision makes up roughly 100° of it.

Because spatial reality portals encompass every angle of a user’s physical space, they offer a true 360° experience.

3. You can share the experience

Head-mounted displays are great for individual experiences, but not so much for group activities. After all, only one person can wear a single headset at any given time. As a result, you may be forced to either

  1. Create a ‘virtual waiting room’ where users don’t get to experience anything until it’s their turn to wear it.
  2. Invest in loads of individual headsets for everyone (not cheap!!)

Regardless of which option you pick, this virtual experience isn’t really bringing anyone together, but rather actually separating everyone. With our spatial reality portals, however, everyone can step into the virtual space at once, allowing for many more interactive experiences.

4. More cost effective

As mentioned above, the most high-end headsets are out of reach for most consumers (and businesses for that matter!) And if you want your application to be one which loads of people can use at once, then investing into tons of them will make your company’s wallet weep. Why do that when you can just hire a single portal to do the job just as well, if not better?

Even if you could afford them, eliminating VR headsets out of the equation saves up a lot more budget for you to focus on making the content in the viewers’ virtual experience the absolute best it could be.

5. Reduced risk of motion sickness

As it stands, headsets currently carry a risk of inducing motion sickness in users, or otherwise causing confusion or disorientation. They don’t always feel nice to wear, and goggle vision is a real thing.

Headset-free spatial reality minimises this risk tremendously. You only need your own eyes and ears, just like you would looking around a real forest, beach or cityscape.
