Virtual environments are familiar from games, apps and movies. This far we´ve been able to explore them on two-dimensional screens, but when viewing systems like Oculus Rift become available it is going to change. With a device such as the Rift, it´s possible to view virtual worlds from one´s own perspective and even look around turning your head from side to side.
