First talk about what is Virtual Reality? Virtual reality is an artificail environment or scene that are created by using hardware devices and software of a computer. This artificial scene or environment is presented in such a manner that it look and appears 3-D and we feel like a 3-D world.
To experience a vitual reality scene or environment, a user requires a head- mounted display (HMD) and special types of gloves which receives input from the computer. A HMD keeps a track on how eyes move and responds by sending a new input video. Also a user require the data gloves which sensor the movement of hand and interface those movement by a computer. The most important element requied for virtual reality is the software to give a real experience which feels like a real world.
