You are in the market for a new home, so you tour the house. You look up and down and inspect every inch of the place, assessing the dimensions to get an idea of whether that cabinet you have will fit in the corner. The house is in California, but you are currently in New York … and are looking at your smartphone.
Where you would have once looked throughstatic 2-dimensional photos of the house online before traveling across the country to inspect the location in-person, virtual reality offers the possibility of viewing both real and artistically created locations in stereoscopic 3D. With virtual reality, you could view actual footage of the house in 3D from anywhere you can get an internet connection.
