What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual reality (VR) offers a computer-generated 3D environment, inclusive of computer graphics and 360-degree video, that surrounds a user and responds to the actions of an individual in a natural manner, generally through immersive head-mounted displays. Gesture recognition or handheld controllers provide body and hand tracking, and haptic or touch-sensitive feedback may be incorporated. Besides, room-based systems offer a 3D experience, as you move around large areas, or they can be used with various participants. The virtual environment is perceived via a device called a virtual reality handset or helmet. Virtual reality allows us to immerse ourselves fully in video games as if we were one of the characters in them. A few of the applications of virtual reality include military, healthcare, fashion, business, education, entertainment, and many more.
