Virtual reality is a concept that has interested us for many decades now, but the buzz surrounding it since the inception of the Oculus Rift headset has been phenomenal. The headset has been taken on by hundreds of game development companies, praised by Stephen Hawking, and recently had billions invested in it by Facebook
. Not to mention the interest by non-gaming companies such as Toyota, who are looking at consumer applications outside of the entertainment industry.
