A look at the effects virtual reality has on users. These effects can manifest physiologically or psychologically, through the use of the interfaces and feedback of virtual tech. Several sources are discussed, including a study from the University of Virginia’s Department of Computer Science and a panel presentation attended by the author titled "A National Research Agenda for Virtual Reality: Report by the National Research Council Committee on VR R&D" (NRCC). Some of the side effects of virtual reality tech use are eye strain, motion sickness, and sopite syndrome. Altering the mental model held by the user's own body as well as challenging attitudes towards certain social behavior can cause psychological afflictions as well.
