Virtual reality uniting is groups in actual reality.

In an inspiring move of unity, big names Acer Starbreeze, Google, HTC VIVE, Facebook’s Oculus, Samsung, and Sony Interactive Entertainment have come together to create a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of virtual reality (VR) technology. The Global Virtual Reality Association (GVRA).

From their press release, they announced:

The goal of the Global Virtual Reality Association will promote responsible development and adoption of VR globally. Association’s members will develop and share best practices, conduct research, and bring the international VR community together as the technology progresses. The group will also serve a resource for consumers, policymakers, and industry interested in VR.

VR is a rapidly progressing technology that has brought several advancements. Among these, we’ve gotten realistically immersive video games, applications in labor industries, and virtual reality college lessons.

There has been concern that different VR headsets are not compatible with the software and hardware of other brands. GVRA seeks to increase cooperation of developers by having avenues for discourse. Together with this, the association also aims to share research with the developers of member companies. The policy-making that GVRA aims to develop can also address concerns on ethical responsibility in the creation of virtual environments.

With the strengthening of its developer companies, it seems to be that VR has a better future ahead.
