How Virtual Reality was developing through years

The last several years VR was utilized for games and entertainments, companies use it for developing their products.

The concept of virtual reality (VR) is full immersion and feeling that the person is in another world. Therefore at first, the technology was tested in video games.

Virtual reality makes possible to experience anything, anytime, anywhere. Virtual Reality provides us with an artificial environment which is experienced through sights and sounds which itself provided by the computer and our actions determine what happens in the environment. As a kid, we were told about the five senses that we possess (taste, touch, smell, sight, and hearing). However, neurologists have identified 21 senses and with these senses, we experience the virtual environment around us.

 

“ Virtual Reality was once the dream of science fiction. But the internet was also once dreamed and so were computers and smart phones.”

 

It was like a dream, that comes into reality. Today, almost every big company is working on virtual reality. Google is using VR to measure your room whereas Facebook is gathering IRL friends in VR. Also, NVIDIA is providing power to process VR.

 

So how does the development of Virtual Reality looks like? Here we come

 

 

 

At first, it started with the red and green glasses, the ones that we used to wear in (the time when a person is a child). Those are known as Anaglyph 3D glasses which were used to create the (using both eyes, so distance can be judged) 3D effect.
After Anaglyph glasses, (created special qualities in) 3D glasses came into the picture that we use to watch 3D (full of life and energy/moving) movies or 3D games.

Next comes a super interactive virtual reality experience, companies are making interfaces like Oculus Rift, Samsung GearVR etc, that are a bit expensive to afford. Google has also made a low-level alternative to Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard so that everyone can experience VR without any price constraints. One can even make his/her own VR Google Cardboard easily at home.

A-frame is an open-source framework for creating 3D and virtual reality experiences on the web, originally from Mozilla. A-Frame was developed to ease the way of VR content development. It’s like the bread to your sandwich, which will provide you with some ready-made entities that you can use to make interesting applications. VR scenes created by A-frame work across desktop, oculus rift, mobiles, Google cardboard with just HTML.

 

And the last, but not least thing we want to mention about is statistics!

  • There will be more than 171 million active virtual reality users by the end of 2018
  • 21% of adults are interested to give a try
  • VR/AR market size is predicted to be 215bn USD by 2021

For effective mobile app development, it needs to be done in a series of steps that various mobile app development services have to follow. Let’s take a look at how to structure your app development process.

 

IDEA
Everything starts with an idea that clients bring to software development company. What can help you to improvise your app idea and enhance the chances of your app success is a market research

 

MEETING

PLANNING

The part of the entire planning phase which includes identifying the skills required for the project.

 

DEVELOPMENT
Here we have several steps since it is the main part of app development.

  • Starting with Undertaking UI / UX Designing: the main goal of the UI/UX design of the mobile app is to create excellent user experiences which make your app more interactive, user-friendly and intuitive.
  • Developing prototypes are quite useful for stimulating the experience of the user and the workflows of the app which are expected form the finished product.
  •  Backend includes server-side objects and database required for supporting various functions of the mobile app.
  •  Front-end is a particular native mobile app that the end user will be using. In most of the cases, mobile apps often consist of interactive user experiences which use an API as well as a backend for the management of data.

 

TESTING
Test cases are meant for recording testing results for the purpose of software quality evaluation and also tracking fixes for entire retesting.

 

FINAL SUPPORT
Releasing a particular native mobile app needs submitting the app to the app stores which include Google PlayStore for Android apps and Apple App Store for iOS apps. For this particular reason, you will require a developer account with Google PlayStore and Apple App store before your launch your mobile app.

 

 

Mobile app development is essentially an ongoing process, and it will continue even after the initial launch as you keep getting user feedback and then build additional functionalities. Following the above-mentioned structure, you can streamline your mobile app development process.

Design development: step-by-step to ideal project

One of the biggest problems of the freshman designers — lack of the adjusted work process, lack of organization. It is logical, most designers — self-made persons who began with copying and only after that seriously began to be engaged. In fact, designers practice more, they gain more experience and by time understanding of the full process. Sometimes it happens that designer can be demotivated and lose interest in work, and in the end - to finish the project as soon as possible.

The power of process

In order to make a qualitative material, you will need time for studying a subject and having only gathered knowledge, you will be able to carry out an objective. So why designers think that they can start drawing at once, passing other stages?

Very simply.

The new-born designers pass obligatory stages for two reasons. First, they don't know such stages are. Nobody told them about it. Secondly, all freshman designers pay too much attention to a visual component. As a result, there is a picture which is too far from real business requests.

It is very important to understand that excellent work it is not a result of the genius of the designer (but happens sometimes), and the correct process which leads the designer to the excellent decision. Of course, the more you skilled, it is simpler to make the work well, but the built design process helps to achieve the best result to the expert at any level.

Here we come with 7 simple step to ideal projects

  1. Deep task understanding 
    Understanding the purposes and tasks of business. Questions such as "How it earns?", "What purposes and tasks face users?" will help to underline the main point.
  2. Research
    The analysis of information obtained from the client. An independent research in open sources: studying of the competitors similar in mechanics of services and analytical reports.
  3. Idea generation
    Fixation of the received ideas from the last stage in text form or in the form of sketches. Comparison of the ideas and choice of the most suitable.
  4. Premeditation of scenarios
    Definition of key and minor scenarios. Stage-by-stage study of the main scenarios.
  5. Framework creation
    A framework — structure around which interface elements are under construction. Using the collected ideas and the described scenarios, to create the most suitable structure of the project which helps the user to carry out his tasks.
  6. A search of visual style
    Definition of a necessary message of a brand and choice of suitable flowers, fonts, and styles of elements.
  7. Design of models
    Preparation of all models and possible conditions of the interface for transfer to their client or developers.
