“Virtual Iraq” PTSD Therapy System (2004-2007)

In 2004, Dr. Albert “Skip” Rizzo and I began a collaboration in which we developed and deployed a virtual reality system to treat Iraq war veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.  The concept of virtual reality PTSD treatment was validated in the Virtual Vietnam system which I helped develop and deploy several years earlier.

FlatWorld: The Mixed Reality Simulation Space (2001-2005)

Starting in 2001, I oversaw the design and development of the FlatWorld project at the Institute for Creative Technologies. FlatWorld is a mixed reality simulation environment merging cinematic stagecraft techniques with immersive media technology. In many virtual reality systems, users are required to wear head mounted displays that restrict a person’s freedom to physically move […]

Powerglove Interface (1994)

As a purely hobbyist endeavor in August 1994, I modified a Mattel Powerglove as an interface for my PC.  I used plans published in a 1991 issue of Byte Magazine, and I experimented with the glove using Rend386, a shareware virtual reality toolkit.  Like many others, my efforts were inspired by Linda Jacobson’s 1994 book […]
