A man finds happiness dancing in the arms of a red-haired beauty until purchasing the virtual reality machine that produced her puts him above his Visa card limit. American Express has no pre-set limits.
Did You Know?
To reproduce a ballroom dancing experience in VR is, interestingly, very complex and challenging, possibly more so than surgery assistance applications:
Vision: VR technologies have several severe limitations when it comes to syncing locations. The computations needed to calculate both dancers' coordinates quickly would require a massive CPU/GPU system which in turn would require a cable from the headset and this could also affect the feasibility of engaging in dancing.
Haptics (Touch): Very weak and will need to progress much before the contact experience can get communicated and maintained in a dynamic setting.
Sound: A person's hearing senses that have evolved to become very sophisticated. VR technology has focused a lot on visuals and due to the gaming bias, the VR sound, even stereophonic, is mostly about explosions and short duration bursts. During VR-based ballroom dancing, the sound profile for what the player hears needs to be dynamically adjusted without a lag. This is "spatial" management of sound and also technologically very compute-intensive. See more
