You have probably seen the commercials on TV selling the Virtual Reality glasses. Or maybe you have heard the acronym VR, which stands for Virtual Reality. Or maybe you have seen the number 360 on videos and are wondering what that means (360 videos allow you to pan in all directions as you watch it = 360 degrees).
