What is Virtual Reality?
VR – or Virtual Reality to you and me – is the practice of creating computer generated images or sometimes even entire worlds for a user to experience as if they were there. Whereas traditionally we’d use a television screen to view these images and games, technology now allows us to simply put on a headset with much smaller screens inside and become fully immersed in these new worlds. While virtual reality is perfectly safe on the whole (although sometimes you might feel like you’re in real, physical danger) there are some things to look out for if you plan on giving it a try.
In this guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as screen time, medical risks and safety implications.
