Today was a good opportunity to talk about how Virtual Reality works. Specifically, the students got a chance to see how our eyes work and what allows the VR images to “trick” our brain into thinking we are somewhere else. First, we talked about the nature of “Binocular Vision”.
From there, we moved on to “Stereoscopic Vision”. The students got to see that our two eyes give the brain two images from differing angles where they are then combined into one.
