THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF HYPE about virtual reality (VR) and for good reason. This technological marvel has become amazingly sophisticated.

The core of every VR application is a database used by a high power computer to build and display graphic images. Unlike other graphic programs, however, the VR computer can sense your head and body movements through cables linked to the helmet and glove and adjust what you're viewing accordingly. Using a glove, joystick, mouse or other device, you interact with the images presented on the screen. Your mind suspends disbelief and the computer generated characters take on real life qualities.

The ultimate goal of virtual reality is to give the user the illusion that the computer created world is real. Researchers have taken the technology even further by adding a sense of touch to virtual objects – bringing VR much closer when you might be able to feel that shark bite.
