What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality takes you to another dimension when you put on VR glasses. VR is mainly used for simulations, watching movies or for playing games. You can read what Virtual Reality is, how VR glasses work, and what VR does.

How does a VR headset work?

VR gaming

You can discover Virtual Reality with a VR headset. There are several types of VR headsets: active glasses and passive glasses. The active VR headsets work without a computer and are almost always wireless. They work as a stand alone system. Passive VR headsets are always paired with a powerful PC or console, which you connect the headset to. Gaming in VR is a different experience than playing regular games. Gaming is possible with VR headsets such as the Oculus Quest, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift.

What can you do with VR?

Experience Virtual Reality

Not only gaming is possible with VR. There are also short 3D movies made especially for VR and Netflix series such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Virtual reality games have also been the beginning of the business opportunities with VR. For example, VR is also used for training staff in healthcare, education, and for designing buildings. Because you're in the middle of your own design, you can walk around it and make adjustments everywhere.
