Cyberspace is a name given to a place where computer simulations take place. Place is a misleading term as it is really just happening in the circsits of a computer.

The children may not actually be experiencing these things, but the computer display relays something of the sensation. Designers also employ virtual reality to view or try out their creations such as buildings, oil rigs or cars, vithout spending the money to build them This is done by feeding the design plans into the computer, which can calculate what the thing looks like from all angles.
