The types and purpose of VR glasses. Key features of choice
Virtual reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. The essence and the main difference from VR similar developments is that they place the user in the game. Instead of having to sit and watch the happenings on the monitor, users are immersed in a world of virtual reality and can interact with three-dimensional worlds. Simulating more senses such as visual and auditory perception, touch, even smell, VR glasses turn into a teleport, which you get in the game world. But the costly technology and the lack of a large number of really good content are the only problems with VR. The range of VR glasses can be divided using different criteria and methods of classification.
There are two types of interaction with virtual reality: passive, which involves rollback and viewing of 360 images or videos with a fixed term, and active, which allows you to interact with content and change the picture depending on the course of events. One example is connecting mouse and keyboard to play racing game — are you still using traditional controls, but instead to look at the car on a 2D screen, you sit in it, putting on a VR headset.
Your body will react differently to passive and active manifestation of virtual reality, but any of these options can make your brain believe that you are in a digital environment. For example, on a roller coaster in VR glasses can give you the same feeling in my stomach, even if you’re not near a theme Park.
