Chapter 1: Introduction
In this rapidly changing and growing world, every day a new technology is developed blurring the boundaries between people, internet and physical world. Virtual reality (VR) is one such technology that has taken some significant strides in recent years. Virtual reality is a three-dimensional computergenerated environment created through the combination of hardware devices and software programs allowing users to interact with an artificial three-dimensional environment.

This is achieved by using a head-mounted display, audio output and input tracking devices. Based on the type of technology used, users are effectively immersed in a virtual environment. The technology provides a different experience and a new way to see things. Over the past few years, virtual reality has drawn a lot of attention. VR has gone from being a science fiction fantasy to an actual reality.

The ongoing research and development studies in virtual reality show that VR will continue to grow as technology improves. People these days are being increasingly aware of the technology developments and therefore the virtual reality concept has become a trending topic, solidifying the VR market. VR market is poised to show significant growth in the coming years.

This can be attributed to the growth of the mobile industry, decreasing cost of hardware and software, and rising technology penetration across the many industries such as retail, healthcare, e-commerce and automotive.
