Virtual reality

Virtual reality is a computer-generated experience that immerses you in a completely different world using a virtual reality headset. These headsets, such as the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or PlayStation VR, are significantly more advanced than previous attempts to create virtual reality systems for the public and are now bringing VR gaming to the masses. The virtual world can also be enhanced with sound and haptic touch technology, and VR has also been applied to movies, health, sport and science.
