With the advancement in display, sensing and computer technology, it gives the user a new VR experiences which are more realistic and immersive for different VR applications. VR can lead to new and exciting discoveries in different fields. There are wide range of applications for VR which includes:
The potential of VR in entertainment is clear and huge as the entertainment industry is a multi-billion dollars and consumers are always interested on its novelty.
