Virtual reality is the use of computer technology to create simulated environments. Virtual reality places the user inside a three-dimensional experience. Instead of viewing a screen in front of them, users are immersed in and interact with 3D worlds.
Simulation of human senses—all five of them—transforms a computer into a vehicle into new worlds. The only limitation to a superb VR experience is computing power and content availability.
Sport teams, especially the professionals, are investing in virtual reality to gain a cutting edge. NFL and college football coaches are incorporating VR technology into their practices to prepare and train for games. NASCAR drivers and soccer teams are using VR to retrace their steps to learn from mistakes.
And when it comes to fans, VR is all about creating new experiences. The NBA allows users to see highlights from the player’s perspective.
