The science of Virtual Reality has stated its presence in the media
and now it is turning the eyes to see the new generation of games and
3D application.  

However, like the Art in the beginning of our modern society it needs
to become much more matured than it has proven until now. The types of
maturity that I want to talk about are the technology and its use. The
technology that we have can be better used in the Virtual Reality
fields, as well as the Virtual Reality can be better used as it is
used today.    

In the old type of Virtual Reality, the scientist or the user was

more like a reflection of the real world or it was intend to be like

devices were under-developed. They did not support much of high
quality graphics and processor power to achieve the desired reflection
of the real world nor the input devices. The obvious thing that the
scientist or researcher was focusing was on the improvements of the
techniques than how to use the technique. We can compare the stage
with the early ages in the history of picture art. At that time, the
artists were focusing on the technique of making the paintings
increasingly accurate. The important outcome was how close was the
picture to the real image of the world. After improving the technique,
they shifted to more sophisticated techniques in which the outcome was
not so much close to the real world but to other aspects of the

The Virtual Reality evolution seems close to the idea presented above.
We have now a good technique, and we have gained the technologies to
support a good environment for Virtual Reality. What we need is a
better usage than we have in our days. Which are: simulations, games
and small virtual communities. However, is this all that we can get
from this field? Is this all that Virtual Reality...
