What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality (VR) is the creation of a three-dimensional virtual environment, to which the user can experience and interact with as if they were really there. The user can manipulate objects within this environment or just simple interact with them. One important way VR increases the immersion of a user’s experience, is to increase their field of view within this virtual environment, usually around an 110° field of view.
