Pygmalion’s Spectacles: An Intro to Virtual Reality

October 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Presenter: Sifan Kahale          In the 1930s, science fiction writer Stanley Weinbaum describes the idea of a person experiencing near total immersion through the illusion of reality wearing a visual optic headset. From Euclid and Flash Gordon to today’s headsets, the road to virtual reality has been driven by the advances in optical science and the public’s insatiable demand to totally immerse in a tele-experience. This program will provide a historical context for virtual reality, provide a lay explanation of the technology and explain its many uses today. As Buzz Lightyear would say, “To infinity and beyond!”
