In 1992, the PBS show Computer Chronicles took on a hot new topic: virtual reality! There's the Talking Glove (which is actually quite cool), virtual shopping malls (hmm...), the DataGlove (not to be confused with the Power Glove, which was "so bad"), the CyberGlove, and plenty of head-mounted displays.

It ain't exactly Minority Report, but for 1992, it's not half bad. Enjoy:
