About Virtual Reality
VR, or virtual reality, is a new and exciting technology. VR transports you to another world through the use of a headset. Imagine piloting a spaceship through the depths of the galaxy, or climbing the Grand Canyon as the wildlife buzzes aroud you. This is acheived through the use of two different screens, one for each eye, which give the illusion of depth and make VR a stunningly realistic experience. However, because it is such a new technology, it is difficult for the average person to get their hands on, expensive, complicated to set up and continuously improving.
VRexplores is an entreprenurial adventure brought to you by 3 kids who want to bring the future to your door. We want you to learn about this wonderful new technology and experience what VR has to offer. We see VR as a new, incredible technology and we want you to get to experience it with us.
