Virtual Reality (Research discontinued in 2001)

Synopsis

VR will slowly but steadily revolutionise our experience of electronic information. Virtual reality is a way of enabling information users to participate directly in real-time three dimensional environments generated by computers. In a sense, virtual reality solves the human-computer interface problem by removing the interface. The VR concept was born in the military during the 1980s.

"As usual, you’ve done a splendid job of bringing an industry well and truly into the spotlight.

I think that without your input and passion, Australia would have barely scratched the surface of the benefits that can and will be achieved with the wholesale adoption of Smart Grid and Smart City concepts."
