What is VR?

Virtual reality (VR) is an interactive, computer-generated experience that takes place within a simulated environment. This artificial environment 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. 

Virtual reality is primarily experienced through two of the five senses: sight and sound. However, with further VR developments, users can experience a touch (feel) element within certain games. This can be experienced using sensory vests, bodysuits and feet & hand sensors. 

VR technology most commonly uses virtual reality headsets or multi-projected environments, sometimes in combination with physical environments or props, to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user’s physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment. With the latest technologies and gadgets, you can experience breath-taking virtual reality in all its splendour!
