Virtual Reality (VR) is most recognizable as the humorous people wearing headgear falling over. But in all seriousness, VR is a virtual world that tries to either mimic reality or create new ones through a completely simulated environment. The reason why the headsets are so important is to fully engross the user in the environment so their senses can fully experience the environment. The user’s senses are, in a way, taken over by the stimulations from the program. The headset inputs visual and audio stimulation and the handheld joysticks can receive limited touch stimulation. The more sense stimulations that are used, the more “real” the experience feels to the user. The difference between VR and augmented reality is that where VR is a fully immersive experience, augmented reality always has one step in reality. The user of augmented reality sees just that, an augmented visual reality instead of a completely separate one. The current application for VR is primarily gaming. However, there are plenty of other uses, think realtors showing off the interior of future houses. But VR doesn’t just develop itself like the content management systems for websites like WordPress or Drupal. They have to be coded. Currently, two primary game engines are used to develop VR games: Unity and Unreal Engine. The engines either use C#, C/C++, or even Java (more for non-gaming applications). Unless you are fluent in one of these languages, hiring the best VR development company will have to be a requirement.
