ABSTRACT
An inexpensive workstation that creates an immersive environment for several people to see and manipulate computer generated 3D graphic objects would have many innovative and important applications, such as planning and brainstorming (3D viewgraphs), education (3D chalk-board), and data visualization. We have been developing a PC-based system with a multimedia architecture. Each participant uses a head-mounted display with a video camera at each eye, and mixes the live video with computer generated graphics to create a heads-up display of the common scene with added virtual objects. We present the architecture, design problems and solutions, and application experiences.<>
