Virtual reality entertainment has changed the perceptions of entertainment with its entirely new concept. Virtual reality entertainment enables the user to feel the environment for real by sitting at the comfort of their home. For instance, by using VR headset you can find yourself in mid air flying like a bird, in the middle of a sea playing with the waves, catch firefly at night, fighting battle with enemies, top of Everest and innumerable experiences which is rather impossible to do in reality.
To explore the virtual reality environment a user needs a headset made of stereoscopic lenses such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Microsoft HoloLens, which avail the user to see the 3D images in all possible angles and the user to get the minute details of the surrounding. Virtual reality works on tracking the movement of the user which is transferred into the computer. Computer then changes the images accordingly to give an authentic feel of the situation to the user. Thus it increases the involvement of the user by proving him not only the option to interact with the environment but also to control it.
Virtual reality entertainment can be in the form of film, television, videos, virtual theme park, exhibition, orchestra show and many more, but the virtual sports is most popular of them all. As thrill of sports is all about involvement into the game, using virtual reality headset will make a user feel like they are watching the game sitting in the front row in the gallery with other spectators and all the real sound and conversation turning the surrounding into an actual event field. Even for training players VR seems to be beneficial as coaches can create strategies and apply it to the players for practise. Virtual reality games are also popular mostly among kids and youngsters as they feel their presence into the game wearing data glove. Virtual gaming can be anything from racing to shopping, dancing and exploring the world making new friends. With the growing demand the VR industry is working on it’s accessibility and affordability to bring this incredible experience to maximum number of people.
