VR creates a completely digital world, based on real or fictional places, that users can interact with. This can be in a large group (such as a popular art exhibit that allows you to walk through Van Gogh’s paintings) or an individual experience.
The most popular way to experience VR is with individual headsets, which can be bought commercially. The head-mounted device sets a small screen directly in front of the user’s eyes and allows them to experience the world through a ‘first person’ viewpoint. Normally, this is linked to handheld controllers that allow the user to physically engage with the virtual world. Headsets and other VR accessories come in a wide range of styles and prices.
