Virtual reality - Ken Pimentel, Kevin Teixeira

through the new looking glass


Virtual reality allows users to immerse themselves in a computer-generated alternative world. The worlds can entertain, such as the holodeck on television's Star Trek: The New Generation ; or provide instruction, as in flight simulators for airline pilots. The joint efforts of Pimentel, a working designer in the field, and Teixeira, a writer and marketing spokesperson, make the writing current and accessible to nonspecialists. An overview and history of this exciting technology is provided, as well as definitions of the component parts needed to design a virtual reality environment.
