What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual reality can be broken down by two parts in their name. The word "virtual" refers to something that is near, and "reality" describes the experience aspect humans have in life. Virtual reality ties both of these elements together and creates a three-dimensional, computer-generated environment which can be explored and interacted with by a person.
