Have a look at <URL:http://www.unreal.org>.  I was pointed at it as an
example of interesting web design (make sure you have Java and
Javascript turned on and then check out the cube navigation (no, I'm
*NOT* going to copy it)).  The interesting parts are their builder and
movies (look under downloads/movies, also check out the screenshots).
Note particularly their effective handling or larger unbounded spaces
(eg outdoors etc).  

It requires very little stretch to see making a MUD atop this sort of
base.  

Will the first *usable* VR application be a Wolf3d/Doom/Quake/Unreal
clone?  It looks like 1st person gore fests will drag VR into
feasability in the same way that porn made 'net payments feasible.
