This process, however, gives rise to many underlying issues such as contamination and safety risks, long training period, high skill and experience requirements of operators, and greater training costs. In this paper, we proposed and evaluated a novel virtual reality (VR) training system for the assembly of hybrid medical devices. The proposed system, which is an integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI), VR and gaming concepts, is self-adaptive and autonomous. This enables the training to take place in a virtual workcell environment without the supervision of a physical trainer. In this system, a sequential framework is proposed and utilized to enhance the training through its various Bgame^ levels of familiarity-building processes. A type of hybrid medical device: carbon nanotubes-polydimethylsiloxane (CNT-PDMS) based artificial trachea prosthesis is used as a case study in
