“VR” stands for Virtual Reality. VR Headsets are devices one mounts on their head that in effect place them into the world of virtual reality.
It’s important to note that VR stands for Virtual Reality and AR stands for Augmented Reality. It is quite common to see the two terms mixed together and used in a similar context.
34.7 Million people in the United States used Virtual Reality in 2018. 15.7 Million used it via a VR headset and 19 million without. In 2017 there were 22.5 Million people in the U.S. that used VR.
AR is projected to grow more in the short term. Think of it in terms of things like SnapChat where people augment what is reality. AR has more penetration and reach in social media currently.
What Does A VR Headset Do?
That’s a great question. The answer is just about anything virtual. The most common applications currently are in video games, training, and simulations. They have corporate and business use along with obviously recreational use.
