VIRTUAL REALITY.

Though the term "virtual reality" is a familiar one to many people, most of us have yet to see the startling effects this technology has to offer. We are only beginning to scratch the surface of its amazing potential, and its publicity has thus far remained in the domain of Hollywood. With the mind-boggling rapid growth of today's technology, have you ever wondered how far away Hollywood may be from reality?


What is Virtual Reality?
Virtual reality (VR) is a technology that allows the creation of synthetic environments that are controlled by a computer. These environments can mimic a real environment, like the cockpit of an aircraft or the interior of a vehicle, and the environment is usually interactive and often uses specialized input/output devices such as head-mounted displays and position-sensing devices.
