One could perhaps describe Virtual Reality as the ultimate culmination of display and interface technology. Think of how much easier it is be to make a little note and stick it to your desk than to use an electronic organizer. Virtual reality could allow your organizer to have a sticky-note type interface where you just look at the part of your desk for the right note.
The implications of VR are both varied and far-reaching. They range from relatively simple things such as virtual games to multi-million dollar applications such as the most advanced military flight simulators. One thing that is certain is that it will have a profound effect on the way humans interact with computers.
This document will attempt to define what virtual reality is, how it can be used, and what the future might hold.
