Virtual Reality Calculator

      Disclosed is a method of switching from virtual reality to
reality and vice versa, using a virtual reality calculator.  The user
of a virtual reality office environment can quickly and easily call
up the calculator by opening the virtual reality desk drawer and
taking out the virtual reality calculator.

      The virtual reality calulator looks and works similar to the
familiar office caluclator.  The user presses the virtual calculator
buttons, the buttons move in, and the uers's gloves apply pressure to
the user's fingers to simulate the button resistance.  The user can
grab and move the virtual reality calculator, and can remove the
calculator by placing it back in the virtual reality desk drawer.
