Virtual Reality (VR) – Statistics & Facts
Like many other seemingly impossible visions of the future, such as video-calling from a watch or the ability to access almost all the information of the world anytime, anywhere, Virtual Reality (VR) also originates from Science Fiction literature. When computer science slowly took off in the 1960s in the United States, so did research into simulation of different worlds, in which the user can immerse completely. For this reason, VR is also sometimes called ‘immersive multimedia,’ as well as ‘virtual environment (VE)’ or ‘computer-simulated life’.
