WHAT IS VR?
Virtual reality is a completely digital immersive experience. This sometimes takes the form of a head-mounted display, where the user wears a pair of goggles that occlude their vision of the real world. In this format, users are unable to see their real body in the context of the digital environment but can sometimes also see digital avatars of themselves and often have their movements tracked and relayed onto these avatars.
