Virtual reality display. Researchers designing 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 images seen here are being used to create the surroundings that the person will see using a set of goggles. The recreation was carried out in 1991. These researchers are working at the Research Teaching Centre at the Institut Image, an ENSAM engineering centre in Chalon-sur-Saone, France.
