A general introduction to virtual reality and the technology associated with it. The article wants to explore a simulated fantasyland and desires to escape the limits of the everyday world. Two interviews with Brenda Laurel and Linda Jacobson about the issue of identity in VR, theorizing whether one can escape entirely into another existence. The authors also talk about the full potential of VR, where people can "become" someone of the opposite sex, of an altered gender, or another race.
