The Dalí Museum in Saint Petersburg, Florida, is running a new exhibit, entitled “Dream of Dalí”. This exhibit draws on the concept of virtual reality, which refers to immersive multimedia. Visitors put on virtual reality devices and are drawn inside a Dalí painting.

The head-mounted, somewhat obscure-looking, devices are the most recognisable features of virtual reality. Often referred to as virtual reality glasses or headsets, these devices allow players to block out their surroundings and present visuals directly to players. The kind of smile this puts on art lovers faces seems not to be replicable in the gaming world, where the uptake of virtual reality is increasing at a sluggish speed.
