Virtual Dictionary


Tele-Existence taken literally means 'remote existence'. It refers to virtual reality experienced remotely, as is you are accessing a reality which exists elsewhere, rather than having part of it locally - such as stored on your computer system.

The ultimate forms of VR may well be Tele-existential, with the only thing you possess locally being the interface which adapts the physical to the virtual's requirements for sensory interaction.
