The virtual reality has been applied mostly in the field of video games and entertainment in general but the truth is that, contrary to what many thinks, has also been used in fields such as medicine, military training, archeology or even flight simulations.
And virtual reality involves the creation of an environment of scenes and objects that seem real, but that has been created by advanced computer technology, to precisely create that sense of reality in the user who is immersed in such technology (virtual reality immersive).
Once you put on your Oculus Rift glasses you enter your personal room, a kind of virtual room that you can decorate as you wish. From there you can access everything that virtual reality offers you. 3D games, 360º movies, applications to meet friends, games, etc.
The Oculus Rift viewfinder is comfortable and light, with a headband that secures it to the back of the head. The screen consisting of two OLED panels has an incredible resolution of 2160×1200 pixels. This means that 233 million pixels per second will be moved.
In addition, the Rift glasses have a series of accessories available that will further enhance your virtual experience, such as the Oculus Touch controls. Through these controls, we can use physical controls that will recognize our position and that will combine presence, manipulation, and gestures.
