VTV.vn - Virtual reality is the term used to describe a three-dimensional, computer generated environment which a person can interact with and explore.

This technology has been developed worldwide with applications in various fields such as architecture, medicine and sports. And it has come to Vietnam for the first time through a group of young Vietnamese.

During Vietnam Techfest 2015 in May, a stall for virtual reality or VR technology attracted the attention of many visitors. VR technology recreates sensory experiences, which include virtual taste, sight, smell, sound, and touch. The pioneers of this technology in Vietnam are very young technicians.

The most outstanding feature of this technology is that it allows people to have experiences like in the real world. When a person wears VR glasses, the virtual environment provides appropriate responses as he explores and interacts with the surroundings. So it feels like the real world. Besides developing applications, the group is using a doublet lens in the glass to maximize the visual effects.

The most crucial part of VR glasses is the double aspheric lenses. These are the doublet lenses produced by the US. The two aspheric lenses together improve the resolution of the images. With the initial successes of VR glasses, the group now is preparing to produce some applications of this technology in military, education, design, online shopping and even tourism.

Although these are just initial steps, they reflect the potential of young Vietnamese people to master new technology and develop it for domestic use. The group’s VR glasses were chosen to represent Vietnamese products at Slush 2015 - a technology platform for European and Asian startups and tech talent in Poland next November.
