Today I got to experience virtual reality. Some can be very cheap, like the google cardboard. It is about $30. Something better can cost $250 like the oculus rift. VR can be used to treat people with autism and help sports players. I can also help get rid of stage fright for people. A person can practice their speech in front of a virtual audience. Of course, it can also be used for entertainment. Playing games, what I experienced today, is extremely fun, addictive, and realistic. Sensors are used to determine where a person moves his head. A gyro sensor tracks movements. There is one in every iPhone which makes the use of google cardboard possible. Then the image on screen is adjusted accordingly. Each eye has a different view, just like in real life.
