In the first ten years of this century, the development of smartphones has exploded, among which the explosion of mobile platforms led by IPhone has truly changed people's lives. Mobile phones have been redefined from a communication tool to a terminal integrating communication, entertainment, and the Internet. The integrated computing platform has replaced the status of PC in people's life. Although virtual reality seems to be forgotten, although the market attempt is not optimistic, people have never stopped research and exploration in the field of VR. Moreover, the significance of the emergence of smart phones to VR is also obvious. The miniaturization and portability of computing equipment will make VR technology a higher level.
Moreover, since VR technology has been fully expanded in the scientific and technological circles, the scientific and academic circles have paid more and more attention to it, and VR has begun to receive in-depth application research in the fields of medical treatment, aviation, manufacturing and military affairs. During this period of time, although the branches and leaves of VR have not been seen obviously, its root system has begun to penetrate into various fields, constantly absorbing nutrients, constantly accumulating strength, and waiting for the moment of eruption.

With the advancement of computer performance, graphics processing technology, and motion capture technology, it was not until 2012 that VR really enjoyed the dividends of computer technology progress.
Microsoft's motion-tracking sensor "Kinect" was also released in 2010. In addition to Xbox, there is also a Windows compatible version, which can play games by recognizing the player's body movements. Tracking with Kinect is also used in areas other than entertainment (medical, etc.).
