Virtual Reality (VR): Designing Environments

VR provides a real-life, immersive experience of a digital world. In its classical embodiment, it creates a purely virtual experience for the subject; think “Star Trek’s” Holodeck, or wraparound headsets like the Oculus Rift. Gaming technology has always been used from an “external” perspective; the hardware is an accessory apart from the physical self. With VR aiming to blend our physical environments and virtual worlds, next-gen gaming experiences will become more visceral and life-like. Users will be able to use their five senses and manipulate their surroundings using their entire bodies instead of just a controller.
