Semi-and fully immersive technologies to dominate virtual reality market during forecast period

Immersion is the state of being involved in some activity or an environment. With the help of semi-immersive VR technology, a user can experience the virtual world through various control devices such as HMDs and handheld devices. Semi-immersive technology provides a greater feeling of being involved in the virtual environment by using several projection systems or a large monitor, both of which provide a wide field of view for the user. The fully immersive technology-based VR devices enable users to feel the virtual environment in a realistic way. Head-mounted displays (HMD) or virtual reality goggles offer a fully immersive virtual reality environment. In this technology, the virtual environment responds to the user’s actions. A user, once equipped with HMDs and other headsets, is virtually isolated and is unable to respond to any activities or actions in the real environment.
