Method of dialogue of person with computer is named interface and Virtual Reality (VR) is newest of row this interfaces. Applications of VR in area of computer games was first and in this time is rise need to exercise this technology in another areas: industry and education. Nowadays VR are used by many universities, education and industrial companies as well, because they offer lower operating costs than the real situation. In other disciplines where training is necessary, simulations have also offered big benefits. Augmented reality (AR) system generates a complex view where the virtual areas are covered by real environment and offers the basic working place for the user. VR and AR are established itself in many disciplines of human activities, as a medium that allows easier perception of data or natural phenomena appearance. Therefore the education purposes seem to be the most natural ones.
