What is Virtual Reality?

"A virtual reality system is an interactive technology setup (software, hardware, peripheral devices, and other items) that acts as a human-to-computer interface and immerses its user in a computer-generated three-dimensional environment. Virtual reality is the environment or world that the user experiences while using such a system."
