Because tools in real world operate the object in order to attain a specific purpose, it is possible to forecast the movement to some extent. So action of hands to operate the tool to attain a purpose is measured beforehand and the data are stored in computer classified by the purpose. When operating the tool with virtual hand in virtual space, in the case that the system detects that the user is going to perform the operation defined for the tool, playback of the movement of the hand stored in the system enables the user to get operation feeling with more delicate reality.
