Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. Applications of virtual reality can include entertainment and educational purposes. Other, distinct types of VR style technology include augmented reality and mixed reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. Virtual Reality’s most immediately-recognizable component is the head-mounted display (HMD). Human beings are visual creatures, and display technology is often the single biggest difference

From visual simulation to virtual reality to games

A VR-based system using a CyberGlove and a Rutgers Master II-ND haptic glove was used to rehabilitate four post-stroke patients in the chronic phase. Each patient had to perform a variety of VR exercises to reduce impairments in their finger range of motion, speed

Virtual reality in neurorehabilitation
free download

Imagine the following scenario. Stuck in traffic, you have your digital agent make contact with the secretary at the Rehabilitation Center via your wireless palmtop. You are immediately provided with a verbal listing of your daily schedule. It is clear that you will have a tight

On temporal-spatial realism in the virtual reality environment
free download

Abstract The Polhemus Isotrak is often used as an orientation and position tracking device in virtual reality environments. When it is used to dynamically determine the users viewpoint and line of sight eg in the case of a head mounted display the noise and delay in its

The effects of virtual reality on consumer learning: an empirical investigation
free download

As competition in business-to-consumer e-commerce becomes fiercer, Web-based stores are attempting to attract consumers attention by exploiting state-of-the-art technologies. Virtual reality (VR) on the Internet has been gaining prominence recently because it enables

The virtual reality modeling language and Java
