Paper Abstract

The application of contemporary computer graphics to scientific visualization is described, with emphasis on the non-intuitive problems. We then describe a radically different approach which centers on the idea of the scientist being in the simulation display space rather than observing it on a screen. Interaction is performed with nonstandard input devices to preserve the feeling of being immersed in the three dimensional display space. Construction of such a system could begin now with currently available technology.
