Caption: Virtual reality display. Engineer setting up a virtual reality system to recreate Cluny Abbey, a French abbey founded in 909. It was demolished in 1810, and only scattered ruins now remain. The reflective metal balls on the stones are used as reference points in building up the recreation (seen on the screen). Virtual reality (VR) is where a person interacts with a computer-generated reality, usually for training, leisure or educational purposes. The person wears goggles that depict the environment in which they are moving. This work was carried out in 1991 by the Institut Image, an ENSAM engineering centre in Chalon-sur-Saone, France.
