Paper Abstract

While computer graphics play a significant component in the development of virtual environments, optics and its interface to the computer graphics software play an essential role as well because they are both required for the effective visualization of virtual environments. Moreover, optical technology is often a component in satisfying stringent tracking requirements. We shall focus in this paper on aspects of virtual environments where optics play a part, describe the development of the VRDA tool for visualization of anatomy, and summarize recent investigations of visual optics for improved head-mounted displays.
