Introduction to vr2vrmlvr2vrml is a collection of programs that enables a VRML world to communicate with virtual reality equipment.
Picture showing some elements of the setup: Finn wearing a headset (Virtual Research VR4 helmet). On the top of the helmet is a magnetic tracker mounted (Polhemus fastrak). To the right of the screen is a Spaceball. The Silicon graphics computer is running the Netscape web browser with the Cosmoplayer Plugin VRML browser, and this is displaying one of our VRML models. The bounded viewpoint in the VRML virtual world is control by the magnetic tracker, so when Finn moves the head the viewpoint follows. In the headset is the little screen area the VRML-browser occupies monoscopically displayed.
