Caption: Virtual reality display. Users exploring a virtual reality system recreating Cluny Abbey, a French abbey founded in 909. It was demolished in 1810, and only scattered ruins now remain. 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 VR system is known as the "Cubic Hopper". This work was carried out in 1991 by the Institut Image, an ENSAM engineering centre in Chalon-sur-Saone, France.
