Virtual Reality - Exploring Worlds From Your Sofa

Virtual Reality (VR) allows you to explore exciting new worlds without leaving the comfort of your own home. With VR, you can experience everything from creative 3D art to adventure games and much more. Immerse yourself in a different world and explore a variety of thrilling and unknown possibilities from your living room.

Virtual Reality is revolutionizing the way we experience and interact with our surroundings. VR is a technology that immerses the user in a virtual world, providing a unique, interactive, and life-like experience that can take you anywhere you want to go. With the help of a headset and controllers, you can dive into new worlds, visit distant places, and experience things that you would never be able to see in the real world. From the comfort of your own sofa, you can explore a magical kingdom, join a space mission, or even experience a rollercoaster ride. With VR, the possibilities are endless. So go ahead: enter the world of VR and discover the amazing things it has to offer. Now you might think, "How does it work? And is it worth it?” Let me help you answer.

To answer the first question, you need to know what “Motion -and Head Tracking” is. And yes, it's exactly what it sounds like. Motion Tracking tracks your movement and Head Tracking tracks your head direction, etc. In your VR-glasses (if you have them) are sensors that capture your gestures, your line of sight and so on. The next thing is the lenses. To explain them, you should have heard of stereoscopic vision. It is the combined sight of your right and left eyes. Your eyes combine both “pictures” and that equals what you see when you are reading this article. If you cannot imagine that, try it yourself:

  1. Hold one finger about 15 cm away from your nose.

  2. Close one eye.

  3. Now quickly switch to your other eye.

Do you see the difference?

Your VR-glasses do the same: they create two pictures of the same “place” you are in, and your eyes combine them.

Now you know how virtual reality works, you can continue playing.
