slide3:What is virtual reality?
Virtual reality or virtual realities (VR), which can be referred to as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated reality, replicates an environment that simulates a physical presence in places in the real world or an imagined world, allowing the user to interact in that world. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experiences, which can include sight, touch, hearing, and smell.
slide4:TYPES OF VIRTUAL REALITY
VR Systems can be divided into three groups:
1)NON-IMMERSIVE SYSTEMS(like workstations)
Large display,but doesn’t surround the user.
HYBRID SYSTEMS(graphics on top of realworld)
also called:AUGMENTED REALITY Systems
AR integrate the computer-generated virtual objects into the physical world. Stay in real world,but see simulated objects.
This involves literally augmenting reality with
3) IMMERSIVE SYSTEMS(like HMD or CAVE)
See simulated world and “be”
in that simulated world.
It basically is an artificial reality that projects
you into a 3D space generated by the
