Virtual reality is a place of imaginary worlds and visual wonders. It has become a phenomenon of science and electronics. Showing worlds of imaginary ideas and creativity of the mind.

“This is a new step into technology and is very new,” sophomore Luis Abad said. “Nothing like this has been ever invented, until now.”

How the technology works by wearing a special headset with sensors that detects head movement; and a screen that acts like a pair of goggles that projects the video. It creates a lifelike appearance of place in the world or acts, as a game screen for VR(virtual reality)games.

“It’s the next step into entertainment and gaming,” junior Jakob Muttoni said.

So far VR systems have gotten attention from many companies like Sony that want to create their own technology that allows the users to interact with their VR system.  One of the companies is IKEA, a company known for making furniture, has created a virtual reality kitchen to advertise their kitchenware.

“It will make safe simulations and a new learning tool in most ways,” sophomore Jacob Witte said.

But with every great invention there are some problems with VR. The technology is very expensive and most people will not be able to afford it. For some it may cause motion sickness because the screen appears to move. Also, the technology for the VR may have a few flaws because it is still being developed. Some people may get addicted to being in a virtual world. It may even cause injury because the headset blocks proper vision, while being worn.

Even with VR’s strengths and weaknesses, it has become a very futuristic and interactive invention. Creating worlds of imagination, entertainment, and creativity for people. So go on a journey, a virtual journey into the world of virtual reality.
