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.

I have both worked with Paul and valued his opinion on many occasions. Following, his many comments on the telecommunications industry has been rewarding and insightful. His reports have always been of value and help guide us through the maze of jargon, politics and defined the real road map of this complex industry.
