Virtual reality (VR) uses computer simulation technology to provide a simulated experience that is similar to the real world. This generates a virtual world in a three-dimensional space and users often experience visual and auditory simulations. The computer can keep in time to the user’s movements by performing complex calculations which provide accurate images relative to the user’s physical position in the virtual world. The technology integrates the latest computer graphics developments, computer simulation, and a high-tech simulation system.
Using VR technology can break the limitations of time and space. The device can be used anywhere and users are able to meet their friends anytime through the virtual platform. VR has become especially popular during Covid-19; isolated people can socialise with others from the comfort and safety of their own home, and institutions have realised the benefits of this technology.
VR technology has many uses, including entertainment (i.e. video games), education materials (i.e. medical or military training), and office meetings. There are also distinct types of VR related technology such as augmented reality (AR) and the mixed reality (MR). The most common use of VR is in entertainment applications such as video games and 3D cinema. Sony (PlayStation VR) set off a new wave of application development in the 2010s. Meanwhile, users have experienced sporting events, fine art, music videos, and short films using 3D cinema. As people become more aware of the convenience of VR, the technology will become increasingly mainstream.
