Towards Virtual Reality

Prof. Zhihan Lv
Associate Professor, Uppsala University, Sweden
Research Expert, Haier IoC Research Institute, China.

Virtual Reality is a computer simulation system that can create and experience virtual worlds. It uses a computer to generate an analog environment and use the user to immerse in this environment. Virtual Reality is the use of data in real life, electronic signals generated by computer technology, combining various output devices, making it a phenomenon that people can feel, these phenomena can become real objects in reality, or a substance. We can't see the naked eye, which is expressed through the threedimensional model. Because these phenomena is not we can see directly, but the real world of computer technology simulation, called Virtual Reality. In our work, I researched the use of Virtual Reality in geographic information, molecular biology and eurological rehabilitation, and has developed some enhanced realistic interaction technology. Finally, we introduced the work of Hash Geocoding and blockchain in Virtual Reality Geographic Information Systems.
