With such a wide ranging subject as virtual reality it’s nigh on impossible for one website to cover every aspect fully. But collectively across the internet you will be able to find an answer to every question on our subject.
This resources page of VirtualReality101 will serve as a central hub for everything related to VR.
VirtualReality101 is of course growing into a valuable resource in its own right. From here you can reach a number of useful internal pages, most of which carry information unique to the site. Where supplementary info is useful you’ll find links to other sites which provide valuable additional insight.
Useful resources come in a number of guises, so here’s a rundown of what we’ll cover:

People In VR
The core value in any technology lies in the people that have input to its creation and growth. In the world of virtual reality there are a number of key names to be aware of. Experts in the field, drivers and proponents of the technologies employed, and those who clearly have a passion for future expansion and developments.
We do most of our research online these days, so books have taken somewhat of a back seat given the wide range of info that’s freely available in seconds on your phone, tablet, or PC. They still have their place though, and many of us still prefer our reading opportunities in the form that grew as the primary method of gathering knowledge through the ages.
There are a handful of books written on virtual reality that are essential reading for anyone wanting a firm understanding of the history and foundation principles of our subject.
There’s nothing quite like a well-trafficked forum for finding out more about any subject, and virtual reality is no different.
