Who invented virtual reality?

The first virtual reality headset was created in 1968 by American computer scientist Ivan Sutherland and his student, Bob Sproull. Contemporary virtual reality technology relies on accumulated knowledge and techniques to create compelling alternative realities. As such, it is difficult to attribute the invention of virtual reality to a single person. However, one of the first people to create a comprehensive virtual experience was Morton Heilig.

David Em became the first artist to produce navigable virtual worlds at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) from 1977 to 1984.Marketing in the real estate industry has changed dramatically over the past decade, from mailing to virtual videos. To improve the sense of immersion, portable multi-wire cables offer haptics for complex geometries in virtual reality. Many modern first-person video games can be used as an example, using various triggers, responsive characters, and other similar interactive devices to make the user feel as if they are in a virtual world. Furness created a working model of a virtual flight simulator, for the military, called Visually Coupled Airborne Systems Simulator (VCASS).

Headsight wasn't really developed for virtual reality applications (the term didn't exist then), but to allow immersive remote viewing of dangerous situations by the military. In addition, users in different rooms could interact with the silhouettes of other users in the same virtual world. It is believed that Gernsback may have first thought of these virtual reality glasses in 1936.This is an edited excerpt from the report Virtual Reality: Thematic Research produced by GlobalData Thematic Research. Virtual reality (VR) is a simulated experience that can be similar or completely different from the real world.

You can participate in the virtual environment distributed in 3D as a conventional avatar or a real video. While this is a far cry from current virtual reality, many have credited Sensorama as the first virtual reality device. Currently, standard virtual reality systems use virtual reality headsets or multi-projected environments to generate realistic images, sounds, and other sensations that simulate a user's physical presence in a virtual environment. Mixed reality (MR) is the fusion of the real world and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations in which physical and digital objects coexist and interact in real time.
