Artificial Reality

Author(s): Myron W. Krueger

Artificial Reality presents the results of Myron Krueger’s doctoral dissertation “Computer-Controlled Responsive Environments”. The book deals with interactivity as an aesthetic problem, and considers new ways in which people and machines might interact. Krueger introduces the notion of “responsive environments” as computer systems that could sense our needs and respond to them in real-time. Artificial reality describes in detail the “responsive environments” developed by Krueger GLOWFLOW, METAPLAY, PSYCHIC SPACE, and VIDEOPLACE.
