The origin of the term ‘Virtual Reality’ can be traced back to the work of French playwright, actor and director Antonin Artaud [1938]. Artaud’s drama ‘Theatre and its double’ was first of the sequel to be followed by several fiction and nonfiction novels, dramas, and movies generating enthusiasm in this novel area of work.
