What is Virtual Reality Anyway?

So which one?
Well personally I think there isn’t a practical use for this technology yet. The only uses I see fit are those that are in a professional environment. However if you have been looking at one for gaming VR is what you want. AR does much for an existing game library, while VR has lots.
With the amazing app driven VR headset that exist make it great for simple “games” and for a 3D video experience. One such app driven headset that is cheap is Google’s headset, Google Cardboard.
