Virtual Reality is a computer-simulated environment that immerses users in lifelike experiences. Putting on VR glasses detaches users from their physical environment. The experience can be highly immersive and can lead to a strong sense of presence – the feeling that you’re actually part of the virtual environment, caused by total stimulation of the senses.
The technology has been around since the 1980s and has proven itself on a broad scale since its inception. However, it was very expensive and rather inaccessible. Fortunately, modern hardware is making this technology more compact and more affordable. The interaction and movement possibilities are also being developed at lighting speed, thereby increasing the application potential in various branches.
