If we focus more strictly on the scope of virtual reality as a means of creating the illusion that we are present somewhere we are not, then the earliest attempt at virtual reality is surely the 360-degree murals (or panoramic paintings) from the nineteenth century. They used holographic recordings to portray real life experiences including smell and touch. This technology was fascinating from the very beginning. This was now being used in video games, training and education, media, therapy, architectural designs and many more. According to TechRepublic, Ford Motor Company currently uses Virtual Reality in its Immersion Lab to help get a sense of how customers experience their cars.
Virtual reality has multiple applications for healthcare. One use, is the use of VR in therapy. For example, psychiatrists at the University of Louisville use VR in cognitive behavior therapy to treat patients with social anxieties or phobias of things like flying, public speaking, or heights. The controlled environment allows doctors to expose their patients to simulations and direct them on how to cope with how they’re feeling.
It has sky rocketed the marketplace and it’s so beneficial to the business place because it is a very cost effective way of developing a product and/or service. Business places can use it for an immersive experience for a customer to test drive a new product and use feedback to improve.

THE 360 DEGREE VIDEO.
360 degree video changes the game when it comes to how we record and view videos now. The 360 degree video, also known as immersive or spherical videos, are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras (“360-degree video,” n.d.). This allows its viewers to feel like they are in the middle of the scene of wherever the video is being taken.

The 360 degree video has been implemented into various things such as Virtual Reality, Snapchat and Facebook. Virtual Reality uses the 360 degree by pre-recording certain scenes or experiences, then adding sensations and sounds allowing its user to feel like they are actual in that scene. Snapchat utilizes the 360 degree video within its filters. When using Snapchat, some of the filters allow you to turn to the rear facing camera and you see different things when you turn your phone5 upward, downward, and to the sides.
Social media, such as Facebook, has also allowed this technology advancement to benefit its business. Facebook 360 is a new addition on Facebook, which allows Facebook users to upload 360 videos and for their friends to basically experience places from all around the world simply using the Internet.

Google has already jumped onboard with this advancement. In 2014, the Google Cardboard came out. To use this gadget, you place your phone into a cardboard with built-in glasses and once the video begins, you begin to experience the realistic features provided when looking around.
According to www.wareable.com, within 19 months, Google Cardboard shipped out over 5 million of the cardboard sets (Google has shipped 5 million Cardboard viewers so far,” n.d.). Currently, PlayStation has released a Virtual Reality Headset for $500+. The uniqueness of this device is that the user puts on the headset, instead of staring into a television set, and plays the game by moving around with the console in their hand. Other businesses, such as Edhead, would benefit from virtual reality. Edhead is an educational company that provides virtual math and science activities such as Hip Surgery, Brain Surgery, Creating a Cellphone and more. Instead of sitting in front of a PC monitor, imagine how amazing the experience would be for users to actually feel like they were in an actual surgery room.
