Original Article


In order to improve the user experience and efficiency of human–computer interaction in virtual reality technology, a comprehensive technology combined with high-tech achievements of multi-field is studied under the background of Internet of Things to realize the interaction between human and computer in a natural and intelligent way. The research results show that the interactive, simulated natural-state and three-dimensional environment can be formed at the display terminal through the processing and operation of information by computer program, which can make people feel immersed. It can be seen that in the environment of Internet of Things, the research on virtual reality technology should not only lay out top-level design and improve security and transmission efficiency, but also promote industrial application and enhance user stickiness. It would help to reveal the development trend of technology and the industrial layout and help relevant subjects to improve their level of technology R&D (research and development) and formulate competitive offensive and defensive strategies.
