A functional virtual environment requires a number of components to be integrated in a single application. These include virtual environment model (geometry, dynamics, visual appearance, and acoustics), input devices enabling the user to interact with the virtual environment, as well as output modalities for providing the feedback to the user. In this chapter the basic concepts of virtual environment development are presented and the possible uses of such virtual reality applications are summarized.
