Some of the applications are exactly that. ;-)

More seriously, VR makes for a compelling news story, but making an 
application too much like real life makes it a bit dull and 
inconvenient. As an example, I spent about two weeks in Singapore 
recently, getting lost between, and in, conference venues. An exact 
reproduction of where I was would be no use, I needed a simplified 
representation, which highlighted useful landmarks.
