Introduction to Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is a natural adjunct to Virtual Worlds (VW), although it is a step beyond. VR allows the user to see a presentation on a display in 3D instead of a simple, flat 2 dimensions. Before VR headsets became available, VWs existed in 3 dimensions, but could only be viewed in 2D.

Viewers for VR

To use sites or apps that display VR, it is necessary to have a headset or 3D glasses.
Hypergrid Business, an online newsletter by Maria Korolov, frequently publishes reviews of VR devices along with business developments in the field.
