The effect is commonly created by VR headsets consisting of a head-mounted display with a small screen in front of the eyes, but can also be created through specially designed rooms with multiple large screens.VR systems that include transmission of vibrations and other sensations to the user through a game controller or other devices are known as haptic systems.
The consortium subsequently developed X3D from the VRML framework as an archival, open-source standard for web-based distribution of VR content.
All modern VR displays are based on technology developed for smartphones including: gyroscopes and motion sensors for tracking head, hand, and body positions; small HD screens for stereoscopic displays; and small, lightweight and fast processors.
The immersive environment can be similar to the real world in order to create a lifelike experience grounded in reality or sci-fi.
Augmented reality systems may also be considered a form of VR that layers virtual information over a live camera feed into a headset, or through a smartphone or tablet device.
Elements of virtual reality appeared as early as the 1860s.
French avant-garde playwright Antonin Artaud took the view that illusion was not distinct from reality, advocating that spectators at a play should suspend disbelief and regard the drama on stage as reality.

He built a prototype of his vision dubbed the Sensorama in 1962, along with five short films to be displayed in it while engaging multiple senses (sight, sound, smell, and touch).
Predating digital computing, the Sensorama was a mechanical device.
The term "artificial reality", coined by Myron Krueger, has been in use since the 1970s.
