#CEATEC2018 – When you watch TV shows or movies about stock trading, they usually show a room where there are tons of screens. This is because there is so much information to keep track of that multiple screens are necessary if traders hope to stay on top of the game. Of course such a setup wouldn’t really be realistic for home traders.
However it seems that Mitsubishi’s trading company, Kabu.com, thinks that maybe virtual reality (VR) could be used to help with that. Basically the idea of using VR is that because in VR, “space” is essentially meaningless and infinite, meaning that you could create a virtual room with an infinite number of displays.
Dubbed the VR-STATION, Kabu.com showed off the concept at CEATEC 2018 in Japan where they are positioning it to be a possible way of trading in the future. We’ve already seen how VR can be used to watch movies, watch videos, surf the web, play games, simulate training environments, so why not stock trading as well, right?
We’re not sure if there are any plans by investors and traders to adopt the VR-STATION, but it does hold a fair amount of potential and we wouldn’t be surprised if it could be adapted for other purposes in the future.
