Past and Present of Virtual Reality:

AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Non classé No Comments

The first reference to Virtual Reality comes from the 1930’s with Antonin Artaud, a French dramatist, poet, essayist, actor, and theatre director. To see the first actual immersive experience you would have to wait for the 60s with the Sensorama (a mechanical device with five short films to be displayed in it while engaging multiple senses (sight, sound, smell, and touch) and the first augmented reality (AR) head-mounted display (HMD) system called “The Sword of Damocles” (it was so heavy that it had to be suspended from the ceiling).

            The big revolution nowadays in VR comes from two different things, the Display (ARHMD and social media) and the possibility to capture 360-degree VR video way easily than before.
