Virtual reality replaces or modifies human sensory input as do other technologies but with different methods or goals. Currently and even more so in the future, these technologies will work off the successes of each, creating a virtual reality melting pot. In this chapter, we look at some of these technologies and their current effect on virtual reality. From there, we identify human technological drives and use this to highlight future technologies that will meld into the melting pot. Lastly, we look at how some of these changes will impact human society and human everyday life.
