Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality is interactivity in such a way that the user actually feels
immersed in the world that the computer creates. Special clothing, headgear and
equipment, depending upon the application. The clothing contains sensors that
record the users movements and immediately transmit that information back to the
computer. For example, to walk through a virtual reality simulation of a house,
you would need garb that monitors the movement of your feet, hands and head. You
would also need goggles that contain video screens and also audio attachments
and feeling gloves so that you can be immersed in the computer feedback. Virtual
reality also provides benefits in educational, scientific and business work.

Japan has just put it to work in its department stores. The stores sell kitchen
appliances called Virtual Kitchen. The prospective buyers bring their kitchen
layouts to the department store, where trained staff enters a copy of the design
into the computer. The customers then don the appropriate equipment and suddenly
find themselves in their own kitchen. These appliances can be tried out in
various sizes, colours and locations. They can also test the opening and closing
of the cabinet doors and drawers. They can place their existing table and chairs
into the picture so that the scene will be very realistic. They can walk around
and discover and feel the ambiance of the new kitchen. With this technology, the
customer is able to buy with a great more deal of confidence What Are Its Uses
