Since its beginning development in the late 1960s, the technology of virtual reality has also come to be known as artificial reality or virtual environment, and is similar if not identical to cyberspace, telepresence, telerobotics and personal simulator (Ditlea, 1990a, 1990b; Fisher, 1990a; Fjermedal, 1990; Hall, 1990; Helsel & Roth, 1990; Krueger, 1990; NASA 1990; Walser, 1990).
It represents one facet of a broad range of research activities that fall under the rubric of an ill-defined, nascent field of study commonly called virtual reality -- though some researchers prefer to use such terms as immersive simulation, artificial reality, telepresence, virtual world or virtual environment to convey the particular flavor of their work.

8, 1786, the US dollar has become a reflection of the US economy whose strength today depends on the ability of the American central bank, the Federal Reserve (Fed), to keep printing as much of this currency as the economic performance requires - although in real economic terms this performance reflects what an expert calls an "artificial reality".
"The kaleidoscopic effect in space interests me," explains Espirito Santo, "the decomposition of a fragmented space." To see this show was to experience a feeling of estranged familiarity similar to that which arises upon looking through the vertiginous hole Espirito Santo's mirror folds create: a sense of having fallen through Alice's rabbit hole only to discover a hyperorderly and artificial reality.
