Virtual Reality Goggles for Consoles?

If you were to see this picture at a distance, you'd probably say that the woman is doing something indecent and her face is partially censored.Well, it's not, you pervert! Yeah, I know I said it but you were thinking it too, all right? All right then. The device looks neither out of the ordinary nor common but everyone can guess what it is. That's right, it's a Virtual Reality device from Icuiti and it's called iWear VR920.

It is said to work on every machine that outputs video and whether it is a laptop, or a gaming console, the iWear VR920 will work the same. Oh, and if you were wondering why is the girl smiling, it's not because she's playing a game and it's fun, she's just been instructed to, she's a model-another reason for which we should believe she's doing anything else except playing a game. I'm kidding...

Anyway, the iWear VR920 will literally let you "step inside" the game as it uses a 3-degree-of-freedom head tracker. Virtual reality is a technology which allows a user to interact with a computer-simulated environment, be it a real or imagined one. Most current virtual reality environments are primarily visual experiences, displayed either on a computer screen or through special stereoscopic displays, but some simulations include additional sensory information.

The simulated environment can be very similar to the real world and sometimes a person's perception of that can be dangerous for them, if the program is running something intense and the person is afraid. Of course, this has nothing to do with getting trapped in Virtual Reality like many movies say, it's just a device that basically projects 360 degrees of environment around you. Icuiti's VR920 is the winner of the 2007 CES innovations award so maybe it's the next big thing concerning gaming.

Just think of how this technology can be advanced and used to help those with visual or coordination problems enjoy recreational video games.
