Journey It is a term with origin in the French word suit. The concept refers to the distance traveled between two places and to the action of specifying said route.
For example: “In the second part of the route, we will border the Farrupo lake while we approach the top of the Hill Lawytt”, "The bullet, on its way, crossed the glass and brushed the child's head before embedding itself in the wall", "The trajectory of the ball was deflected by a defender, who saved the team".
From this definition as distance or travel , the notion of path can be used in different ways. In this way, if we say that you have to travel 80 kilometers to get from a city X to one city Y , we will be indicating what is the distance that exists between both locations.
In a similar sense, in the previous example it could have been indicated that a tourist who left the city X to the city Y He started his journey. That is, the term can not only be used as a synonym for distance but also of path , trip or travel .
All the bodies moving can make paths. Just as a person traveling travels a path, so does a ball that was driven by a soccer player, a stone that is thrown into a lake or a pot that falls from a balcony.
It should be noted, therefore, that a route can be traveled from a conscious or voluntary movement (walking from the kitchen to the bedroom or traveling by car from the office to the home), but also being the result of the force of gravity (a book that falls from a shelf).
The concept of travel or journey virtual it refers to the representation of a route by means of a video recording or a computer generated animation, with three-dimensional graphics. Thanks to the Atlas that was part of the Microsoft Encarta package, a popular digital encyclopedia that the computer giant published from 1993 to 2009, many Windows users were able to experience the first versions of these interesting trips from the comfort of home, which Today they are easily accessible and can offer much greater realism.
At present, thanks to technologies such as reality virtual , although it has been profitable for many years only recently, it is possible to enjoy incredible virtual routes by land, air or sea. An example that does not require large investments is the Panorama View application, available for the Nintendo Wii U console; For little money, it offers interactive videos that allow you to see cities, stroll among a carnival in Rio de Janeiro or fly paragliding with the birds, observing the world around with total freedom.
Thanks to the technology used for recording such videos, which captures almost the entire scene, it is possible to rotate the camera during viewing, moving the remote (which includes a 6.2-inch screen), as if it were a small window towards another reality.
Many companies are working on various experiments and products related to virtual reality, and the most advanced will make it difficult to distinguish between a real path and a computer generated one. Thanks to the combination of the technologies that currently keep us releases With the world around us and video capture, we are already slowly building a digital representation of our planet, and sometimes we spend more time on it than in the real one.
