Early pioneering tech from 1968 is a stereoscopic headmounted display created by Ivan Sutherland, the first Virtual Reality technology:
Computer graphics pioneer Ivan Sutherland models a stereoscopic display he created at Harvard using miniature TV tubes. An early application showed a three-dimensional wire-frame virtual room that users could explore by moving their heads.
I couldn’t locate a demonstration of the wireframe rooms (but if anyone knows … let me know!)
Images above are from the Computer History Museum here and here
Papers written by Ivan Sutherland from 1965 on the subject can be found here and here
We are normally not that crazy about bundle sales, but this one is different. Bientôt l’été is part of this very interesting sci-fi bundle right now. We like the way they put together film, music, books and videogames, mixing the different forms of entertainment. This is pretty exciting and there should be more bundles like it… if there have to be bundle sales at all. hmm….
Whoa. This bundle really is interesting. And Bientôt l’été is one of my fav art games from last year. Instant purchase.
