‘Visual Reality’, has been on the scene for quite some time. Used to train pilots in early 2000s, this technology has now made way to common people’s home.

VR is a fascinating way to put you somewhere else through the power of technology, using a headset and motion tracking to let you look around a virtual space as if you are actually there. It’s also been a promising technology for decades that’s never really caught on. That could change with the current wave of VR. Oculus has released the consumer- ready Rift, HTC and Valve have put out Steam-friendly Vive, Sony has launched the excellent PlayStation VR, Samsung recently added a separate controller to its Gear VR, and Google’s Daydream platform is just starting to emerge from its cardboard shell. We shall focus on the latest and the most promising one on the market in this segment, which is Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PlayStation VR.
Launched on October 13, 2016, PSVR was designed to be fully functional with PS4 console.
Sony has been working on head mounted tech since 2011.The biggest challenge for Sony has been to get people to demo the PSVR, according to a top marketing executive at Sony. You can only play proprietary titles on it, but a theater mode lets you play any PS4 game as if you were sitting in front of a large screen. This is one of the best qualities of the system. One of the biggest flaw of the system is that it requires an additional investment in order for it to function.
As of now PSVR is doing great in terms of sales with more than a million units sold till date. Sales are the biggest proof that the tech is widely liked by PS4 users.
Students can read and learn more about this in order to enhance their awareness about the ever growing Virtual Reality industry. Learning about it will open more avenues for them at various computer animation and entertainment companies. There are new jobs in this sector every passing month, with companies like Nvidia, Microsoft, Google, etc. investing heavily in R&D. Software engineers, hardware engineers, electronics and material engineers can all find a place in this industry. So if gaming and entertainment is a field that interests you, this is a golden opportunity to utilize your engineering skills into entertainment industry.

After a long long summer, monsoon is finally here! In Sangamner, rains are like a blessing to some and for others it might be gloomy and grim. No matter which side you are on, we all need ideas to pass time. Here are few ideas that you can look up to. There are a lot of relaxing, creative and fun activities that you’ll love to do with your friends while staying at the hostel. So, embrace the day as it’s time to recharge and reconnect with your friends and yourself.
  • Indulge in a ‘Jam’ session: Rains have got you stuck indoors? Why not indulge yourself in your lifelong dream? Everyone loves music and a jam session with friends is something everyone can get behind. So collect your like-minded musician friends and create some delightful music with perfect backdrop of rain falling on your window.

  • How about some craftsmanship: Doing some sort of craftsman work and turning it into a completion is a great utilization of your free time. You can build boats, cars, planes etc. with things around you and can race them and see which one of you is the master builder/engineer.

  • Redecorating your room/dorm: Stuck indoors? Great! It’s time to revamp or decorate your room with your roommates. It could be as simple as hanging more pictures/posters on the walls or as creative as wall painting or decorative lighting.
  • Something for health freaks: Exercising with your friends can be really beneficial with the added motivation your friends provide. So, gather up for fitness freak friends and workout to your heart’s content.

  • Brush up your cooking skills: Rains and hot, yummy food go hand in hand. So, if you love cooking and are a foodie, you can indulge in some cooking activities with your friends. Chai and pakora combined with rain can make for a highly intoxicating evening.

  • Football: Hostel corridors and parkings offer a great place to get drenched in rain while playing football! Even if you have never been a fan of this game, it is highly recommended that you give it a try.

At AVCOE, we encourage our students to be innovative and creative even when they are passing time. With a campus as beautiful as ours, something as simple as taking a walk around it can be a sufficiently relaxing experience. Enjoying hot and yummy snacks at the canteen and chatting with your friends on the terrace is also something you can indulge in.
