Types Of Virtual Reality


Non-immersive simulations are the least immersive implementation of virtual reality technology. In a non-immersive simulation, only a subset of the user’s senses are stimulated, allowing for a peripheral perception of reality outside of the virtual reality simulation. Users enter these three-dimensional virtual environments through a portal or window using standard high-resolution monitors powered by the processing power typically found in conventional desktop workstations.


Semi-immersive simulations provide a more immersive experience, where the user is partially but not fully immersed in a virtual environment. Semi-immersive simulations closely resemble and use many of the same technologies found in flight simulation. Semi-immersive simulations run on high-performance computer graphics systems, which are often combined with large-screen projector systems or multiple television projection systems to properly stimulate the user’s imagery.

Fully immersive

Fully immersive simulations provide the most immersive implementation of virtual reality technology. In a fully immersive simulation, hardware such as head-mounted displays and motion sensing devices are used to stimulate all of the user’s senses. Fully immersive simulations can provide very realistic user experiences by offering a wide field of view, high resolutions, higher refresh rates (also called refresh rate) and high contrast levels on a user’s head-mounted display (HMD).
