Today's visualization tools give a taste of what will become possible with
tomorrow's faster computers and better "virtual realities," simulated environments
that let you tour a world that "exists" only as a model inside the computer. Before
about the simulation: how accurate it is in describing sizes, forces, motions, and
the like; how similar it is to working tools used by both engineering students and
professionals; how you can buy one for your very own home, and so forth.
The ground hits your feet, you stumble and stick to the ground like a fly on
flypaper, battered so hard that it almost hurts. You asked for realism, and only the
built-in safety limits in the suit keep the simulated thermal motions of air
molecules and ...
