  7. 7. The hands-on experience is very important, for having tangible feedback from objects and to generate a visual narrative, by touching and combining physical/virtual interaction simultaneously, to customize the visit according to the experience and empathy generated by the unique artifacts.
  8. 8. In the more social environment of a museum, users may be disinclined to isolate themselves with a head- mounted display, or spend time learning the interaction vocabulary of a game controller, stylus and the like.
  9. 9. In collaborative virtual environments (CVEs), where multiple coexistent users experience a space together, there has been some difficulty developing easy-to-use and intuitive mechanisms for navigating through a virtual world, and interacting with its objects.
