Virtual reality (VR) installations are often unique; every one is a complex blend of hardware devices, displays, and computing resources.Configuration of VR software is therefore a difficult and time-consuming process. VR Juggler, our toolkit for VR application development, addresses these problems with a number of innovations. VR Juggler provides a unique system for organizing the configuration information for a system, and minimizing the proliferation of configuration files that many systems suffer. It provides a graphical tool, VjControl, for editing configurations, which can protect users from many common mistakes. VR Juggler also has advanced capabilities for monitoring and altering the configuration of a running immersive application.
