Immersive Multimedia These terms refer to computer-generated simulation of reality with physical, spatial and visual dimensions. This interactive technology is used by architects, science and engineering researchers, and the arts, entertainment and video games industry. Virtual reality systems can simulate everything from a walk-through of a building prior to construction to simulations of aircraft flight and three dimensional computer games. Immersive technologies and virtual reality are powerful and compelling computer applications by which humans can interface and interact with computer generated environments in a way that mimics real life sense engagement. Multimedia Immersif Istilah ini merujuk kepada simulasi janaan komputer yang menghasilkan realiti dengan fizikal, dimensi ruang dan visual. Teknologi interaktif ini digunakan oleh arkitek-arkitek, para pengkaji sains dan kejuruteraan, kesenian, hiburan dan industri permainan video .
