Just as in “The Matrix,” virtual reality is the future of Greyhound racing. It’s just that the future isn’t located in the wilds of Nevada or Australia, but right here on Earth in the comfort of your own living room. With technology advances currently creating high-tech goggles that will enable you to experience the thrill of virtual reality at home, Greyhound Racing is about to get more “immersive.”

It was recently announced that the first of the new Virtual Reality Systems for Greyhound Racing will be available for testing this fall. According to the official site, the new system will provide players with the benefits of virtual reality through three main components. First, the new headsets will allow players to see and interact with their virtual competitors. Second, the new software will allow the players to see and feel the dog run through their track. Finally, the last component will allow players to make their own virtual bets on their virtual greyhounds.

With so many different uses for Virtual Reality, it only makes sense that the goggles would be used for Greyhound Racing. Each time a Greyhound runs a race they are exposed to the elements they face off against such as heat, cold, wind, dirt, rain, etc. In order to take full advantage of those elements and immerse the Greyhound in the ultimate experience, virtual reality software allows Greyhound trainers to create an entirely different landscape for their animals. This completely new dimension offers Greyhound breeders and owners the ability to simulate almost any aspect of a race track that they can imagine. Think about the possibilities. Can you imagine what it would be like to drive a greyhound around a football field, train it to run and then let it loose in the race?

I believe that Virtual Reality is just that, “VR.” It has come so far in the technology field that I have to figure out how people never use this technology. It seems so impossible to achieve, but it actually isn’t. Virtual Reality is here and it is better than you think.

You need to invest in some high quality VR racing Goggles if you’re serious about winning. If you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars, you can get great VR racing Goggles for a fraction of the cost. You can find affordable Virtual Reality headsets online and even find custom-made ones, but be careful. Make sure the quality is really what you want.

Once you start using VR headsets in Greyhound races, you’ll wonder how you ever lived life without them. If you haven’t tried it yet, you have got to get one. If you have already tried them and you love them, there’s no time like the present. Invest in your Virtual Reality experiences today and soon you’ll be the talk of the racing world.
