What Is Virtual Reality?

 
     
 

Virtual Reality, in a simple explanation is an immersive, simulated 3D environment using sight, sound, haptic (touch) and even sometimes smell to create a Virtual Reality environment. It looks, and sounds and feels like you’re in this environment instead of viewing it on a screen with your computer or phone.

 

VR requires some technology to perform this: HTC Vive, Oculus Quest and PlayStation VR (PSVR) are some of the leading providers of the tools. This includes a head-mounted display and hand controllers as the primary tools, others include headphones and wearable clothing (for haptic feedback).

 

It’s possible in the future that the head-mounted display could be replaced with some type of contact lenses or implants. This is farther in the future, it will require a lot of work & time before their is a consumer case for that.

 

Virtual Reality and Augmented reality have similarities but are actually different: AR uses sensors & algorithms to perform, VR uses sensors and math.

This also means that you can go throughout your day using Augmented Reality using your phone or AR glasses, but remaining primarily in the environment around you.

 

Virtual reality requires a headset and controllers and isn’t practical in public. You need to be in your home, work, or sometime of VR dedicated space.
