The first virtual reality device was invented in 1967, but the word “virtual reality” was actually coined in 1990
In fact, the prototype of the so-called virtual reality device introduced before the 1990s could not be equated with VR, because the word was not coined at the time. The term virtual reality (VR) was coined by J. Lanier, founder of VPL Research in the United States in 1990. The annotations given at the time refer to a series of sensory aids such as stereo glasses and sensor gloves. Facility to achieve a three-dimensional reality. But to this day everyone has widely recognized the term VR and the concepts and devices it represents.
