A Brief History of 3-D & Virtual Reality

Stereoscopic 3-D has received a lot of attention lately, strongly influenced by the entertainment industry. Additionally, Virtual Reality (VR) is increasingly being applied to more problems in various industries. This seminar will present an introduction to 3-D & VR, clarify various terminology such as 3D, 2.5D, 4D, RealD, and S3D, and present a timeline showing the history of 3-D and related technologies stretching from the 1800’s to present day 3D Televisions and VR devices.

Visualization can mean various things to people of different backgrounds. Information Visualization, Scientific Visualization, and 3-D Visualization among others each have their own flavor. The shared goal of all visualization is to promote communication and understanding through the visual channel of human perception.
