Virtual reality: High technology fiction.

I am revisiting a topic, posted here before as virtual reality.

One of the areas where the impact of virtual reality or VR is strongest is in business. Business is everywhere and all around us, from our groceries, to fashion and entertainment, from medical tehnology to tourism and communications.

VR will allow a customer at home to 'visit' a supermarket, see what is there to buy and place the order by computer.

We are living a sonic lifestyle and what we can do or achieve is limited by our imagination.

Research has shown that the feeling of pain produced during medical treatment can be reduced through sophisticated virtual reality helmets, the patient just has to wear the VR helmet and play computer games.

Some scientists are working on a computer that will test and record the human telepathic ability. Hopefully this can shed some light on what is going on in the paranormal world.
