Introduction to VR Technology

A virtual reality (VR) is an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment. VR is a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment that can be explored and interacted with by a person. This person becomes a part of this virtual world or is immersed within this environment and whilst there, is able to manipulate objects or perform a series of actions.

In order to experience virtual reality, you will need a VR headset. These headsets are designed to block out the external environment and provide you with a stereoscopic view of the virtual world. There are many types of headsets. There are those connected to computers such as HTC Vive, or Oculus Rift. There are devices dedicated to consoles such as PlayStation VR. But the new booming headset is Occulus Quest 2, which provides all the VR experience in one package.
