Immersive environments are simulations that fill the user’s visual field, giving the sensation of physical presence. Virtual Reality delivers immersion from the individual’s point of view, while immersive rooms bring many viewers into the same simulation. Virtual Reality and other immersive Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have a high potential for transforming the real world and the way in which we interact with it.
