What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual Reality, or Virtual Environment, is a new trend that has exploded in popularity in the last few years. This highly advanced system is capable of making life like anything appear right in front of you all through the lenses of this system. Though Virtual Reality is becoming popular amongst younger generations, most people don’t fully understand what VR truly is. In an article by Virtual Reality Society called “Virtual Reality”, stated, “Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person.” By Immersing the user in this computer generated realm, they can interact and do about as they please. In an article called Virtual Reality by Chris Woodford states, “Virtual reality means experiencing things through our computers that don't really exist.” By implementing this new technology, people can experience things that they may not in the real world due to the “Virtual Environment”. All of this technology seems futuristic, but what is Virtual Reality’s main purpose?
