This article discusses and reviews the research done in the design and development of virtual agents with a stand alone integrated perception systems independent of the environmental and external factors — software and/or hardware — with a major focus on visual perception, and in that too, active visual perception rather than passive visual perception. Most of the agents, methods and techniques discussed in this paper are virtual or exist in a virtual environment. Previous research has been studied, critiqued, further thought upon and ultimately connected leading to a thought experiment that puts into perspective how giving power of sight to intelligent virtual agents affects their behaviour compared to agents that do not “see”.
