More > increased the available software from a few systems running on expensive machines to systems that can give reasonable results on an inexpensive PC. This paper introduces the design of one such system, developed specifically for creating virtual reality applications on a parallel architecture.

Practical experience with the other systems is limited since many require specialized hardware, both for computation and for interaction. For this reason, the discussion will concentrate mainly on design rather than performance issues.< Less
