What is virtual reality or VR? It's basically a tool that allows a user to explore an immersive 3D computer generated space on a VR headset, which makes the user feel like they are in a completely new virtual world. VR allows people to explore real-world heritage and environmental sites of natural beauty from their own home, removing many of the barriers to access these sites.
