60's VR


Apr 3, 2006
I am clearly wasting an opportunity to use this as a meme, but the history of this thing is fascinating and worth learning in detail:




It's amazing how much those people accomplished with awful 60s hardware and rather limited human resources. Even more amazing is how they came up with the idea itself. Computers barely had line graphics at that time. I mean, it could easily be argued that Sutherland himself created the first real GUI system.

it doesn't take a leap of faith to try this stuff when aircraft already had HUD, and BTW analog circuitry can do basic blobber graphics a line maze just fine.
