The emergent of direct manipulation that moved interfaces closer to real world interaction by allowing users to directly manipulate objects rather than instructing computers to do so by typing command creates pathway to a new generation of interaction that based on “reality”. This type of interaction that later termed as “Reality based Interaction” or RBI. The development of this new generation of post-WIMP interfaces has been fueled by advances in computer technology and improved understanding of human psychology.
