VR headsets are head-mounted goggles with a screen in front of the eyes.
Programs may include audio and sounds through speakers or headphones.
The immersive environment can be similar to the real world in order to create a lifelike experience grounded in reality or sci-fi.
The life-sized game, created by developer Abhishek Singh, features all of the familiar sights from the ‘iconic’ first level As Singh is the only one that can see the Mario world, passers-by have no clue – aside from his getup – as to what he’s doing as he jumps over seemingly imaginary objects and feels around with his hands in the air.
In a video shared on You Tube, the game begins just like the original, 2D version, asking the player to choose between a ‘1 Player Game,’ and a ‘2 Player Game.’Then, once he’s made his selection, the objects pop right up into the field of view, including pixelated bushes, question mark blocks, and the familiar green pipes.
Users could change their interface from a wide range of colorful themes in the library. Each member can become a fan of any of the friends in their list and can also evaluate whether their friend is "Trustworthy", "Cool", "Sexy" on a scale of 1 to 3 (marked by icons) and this is aggregated in terms of a percentage.
Unlike Facebook, where a member can view profile details of people only on their network, Orkut allows anyone to visit anyone's profile, unless a potential visitor is on your "Ignore List" (this feature has been recently changed so that users can choose between showing their profile to all networks or specified ones).
