The History and Evolution of Virtual Reality Devices

In this video, Charity Corcino talks about the history and evolution of Virtual Reality (VR) devices. Charity provides a brief introduction to VR concepts that date back to the 1880s through panoramic paintings and in the 1930s through sci-fi books. Charity then dives into the different technologies that contributed to the evolution into Virtual Reality devices, such as the Stereoscope in 1838 and the Flight Simulator in 1929. From there, Charity shows how rapidly the devices evolve into present-day devices such as the Google Daydream, Facebook's Oculus Rift, Microsoft Hololens, Playstation VR, and more to help you understand how this awesome technology came to be.
