Virtual reality (VR) can be defined as interactive computer graphics that provides viewer-centered perspective, large field of view and stereo. Head-mounted displays (HMDs) and BOOMs™ achieve these features with small display screens which move with the viewer, close to the viewer's eyes. Projection-based displays [3, 7], supply these(More)
A room-sized, walk-in virtual reality (VR) display is to a typical computer screen what a supercomputer is to a laptop computer. It is a vastly more complex system to design, house, optimize, make usable, and maintain. 17 years of designing and implementing room-sized ‘‘CAVE’’ VR systems have led to significant new advances in visual and audio fidelity.(More)
The OptIPortal is a tiled display that is the visual interface to the OptIPuter, a global-scale computing system tied together by tens of gigabits of networking. The main point of the OptIPuter project is to examine a ‘‘future’’ in which networking is not a bottleneck to local, regional, national and international computing. OptIPortals are designed to(More)
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, have created a new, relatively low-cost augmented reality system that enables users to touch the virtual environment they are immersed in. The Heads-Up Virtual Reality device (HUVR) couples a consumer 3D HD flat screen TV with a half-silvered mirror to project any graphic image onto the user's hands(More)
The Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) has partnered with dozens of computational scientists and engineers to create visualization and virtual reality (VR) devices and applications for collaborative exploration of scientific and engineering data. Since 1995, our research and development activities have(More)
Phosphor Decay Lag (Ghosting Colors) A CRT projection system is made up of red, green, and blue phosphor tubes; the light from each tube combines to create full-color images. The common green phosphor tube has a slow decay rate that affects good stereo viewing separation (i.e., the green components of full-color images don't degrade as quickly as the red(More)
