Virtual Reality is a technology that simulates a virtual environment for a user that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. In most cases, virtual reality uses a headset that blocks off any light from one’s actual surroundings to allow a user to look around and interact with an artificial world, which can often be an unforgettable experience.
Virtual reality has been developing ever since the mid-1900s when it advanced from an idea in science fiction to the first actual head-mounted display system. Although virtual reality has yet to reach as much of a widespread commercial use like television or cell phones, it has had many applications such as for training purposes and gaming. The further development of virtual reality may be the beginning of a new age in technological media and may prove to pave the way for more advanced technology in the future.
