Paper Abstract

This paper details how simple PC software, a small network of consumer level PCs, some do-it-yourself hardware and four low cost video projectors can be combined to form an easily configurable and transportable projection display with applications in virtual reality training. This paper provides some observations on the practical difficulties of using such a system, its effectiveness in delivering a VE for training and what benefit may be offered through the deployment of a large number of these low cost environments.
