Virtual reality is a computer generated simulation or 3-dimensional image where people can interact in a real or physical way and that creates a virtual environment.  Virtual reality is a type of computer technology that makes you feel like you are somewhere else by visually. Special software produces images, sounds, and other sensations to create an environment.  The entire experience of reality is simply a combination of sensory information and our brains sense-making mechanisms for that information.

Virtual reality in education

Virtual reality can improve education by providing students with memorable and immersive experiences and have the power to engage and inspire students in unique and powerful way. VR can offer students new insights and refreshing perspectives but it can’t replace human interaction. VR can be used as a supplemental learning tool.

VR education technology is an evolving concept that entails student-friendly features that allow or accommodate unique learning experiences. By VR, students can learn about a subject by living it. This technology can increase opportunity for students to be creative.

Teachers communicating with individual students and providing them what help they need has been made easily possible with Virtual Reality.

 Future of Virtual reality

Virtual Reality is one of the technologies with the highest projected potential for growth. Virtual reality has been preparing to go main stream for some time, but the future of reality will look different than the headsets you are used to seeing. Instead, tomorrow’s virtual reality will have the ability to transform how we see and learn about the world around us.

Technology behind Virtual reality

  • Three-dimensional images that appear to be life sized from the perspective of the user.
  • It tracks the user’s motion particularly head and eye movements and it adjust the images on the user’s display to reflect the change in perspective.

 Scientific basics of Virtual reality

VR technology has only one purpose to simulate settings and environments realistically enough to the human brain into accepting them as reality.

VR technologies play with our senses to transport us to any world that we can imagine and live in it.

Scientists find this technology so because it is able to substitute the physical landscape with a virtual one and in doing so it allows researchers to have more control over experiments.
