What is virtual reality?

Virtual reality (VR) is an experience in which computing technologies are used to surround the user with an interactive synthetic environment that responds to the user’s actions. The user’s sensory experience of the environment (such as vision, hearing, touch, etc.) is updated as the user moves and interacts with objects and entities in that environment.
