By now you’ve probably heard something about the latest technology known as Virtual Reality or VR. Virtual Reality in its present form was introduced in 1991 when gaming company Sega released its Sega VR headset for arcade games. Obviously the technology has come a long way from those days.
The latest iteration of VR headsets really began to take off in 2014 when Facebook purchased VR company Oculus for $2 billion. The purchase signaled a major shift in attention to improving VR headset technology and making it accessible and affordable for mass consumption.
We’ll save you the long and overly technical explanation of how VR headsets work, but today VR is becoming widely available and used in any number of applications, including gaming, education, military training, engineering and design. Large corporations are also using the VR headsets at team-building exercises, company meetings, conventions and trade shows.
