Many people think of fully immersive gaming when they think of virtual reality – or even an alternative, virtual universe or existence.

And, while it certainly does offer extraordinary gaming possibilities, it holds many more practical applications, too.
Sadly, you can’t simply slip on a VR visor, lay back, and be whisked away to a virtual universe. However, it is possible to “enter” a virtual world with the correct technology, like that produced by Oculus VR.
