Overview of Virtual Reality Technologies

  title={Overview of Virtual Reality Technologies},
  author={Yuri Antonio Gonçalves Vilas Boas},
The promise of being able to be inside another world might be resolved by Virtual Reality. It wouldn’t be naïve to assume that we will be able to enter and completely feel another world at some point in the future; be able to interact with knowledge and entertainment in a totally immersive state. Advancements are becoming more frequent, and with the recent popularity of technology in this generation, a lot of investment is being made. Prototypes of head displays that completely cover the user’s… Expand
