Virtual reality (VR) is a technology that simulates 3D image or environment that allows user to interact with a real or virtual environment. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experience, which can include sight, touch, hearing, and smell. The output of virtual realities may be either through computer monitor, head-mounted display, speakers or headphones. The immersive environment can be similar to the real world in order to create a lifelike experience.
