‘HyperReality; Paradigm for the Third Millenium’, London and New York, Routledge.
Tiffin, J. and Terashima, N. (eds) (2001)

HyperReality is where virtual reality and physical reality and artificial intelligence and human intelligence coexist and interact seamlessly. The technology that makes this possible was first developed at Japan’s Advanced Telecommunications Research Laboratory in Kansai Science City, Japan by a team lead by Professor Terashima. In 1992 John Tiffin along with a number of other international specialists in associated fields began to collaborate with Nobuyoshi Terashima on the applications of HyperReality. This resulted in: Tiffin and Terashima (eds) (2001) ‘HyperReality; Paradigm for the Third Millenium’ London and New York, Routledge. This is a description of the future of the Internet and its applications to such fields as medicine, education, entertainment, tourism, dance and the elderly. The English version has been a bit of a dog, but the Japanese version has proved a best seller.
