What is virtual reality?

VR creates a fully immersive computer simulated environment, where you feel like you're living in a different world (just like great Sci-Fi films like Avatar but without the risk) for the most realistic 3D experience yet. Whether that's gaming, swimming the ocean depths or being at the heart of your favourite festival or performance, here's everything you'll need to know. Don't forget to visit us again soon for all the latest VR news.

Playstation VR

This is the virtual reality headset for PlayStation owners it works with your PS4 console, featuring multiple tracking devices for a great 3D experience. It's not like a video game, it's more like real life because you won't just be viewing the digital world of your choice, you'll be interacting with it, viewing all the action on a screen in the headset which has been specially designed to remove motion blur. You control the camera and action through movement and become your own Avatar.

You can (virtually) pick up and grip objects and the safety chaperone feature alerts you if you're going to bump into anything on the move. Turn your head, touch objects and move around and the Vive will duplicate your movements in games so you feel like you're really there.
