The possibilities of virtual reality are used as various kinds of simulators. Teachers also use them to demonstrate processes, phenomena, and objects that are impossible or extremely difficult to show in reality, for example, Google Earth VR and 3D Organ on VR Anatomy projects, 3D-Simodont Dental Trainer.
