Abstract

Virtual reality is a fast growing technology within the computer science field. The current technologies using virtual reality are invading our everyday lives such as the medical applications of ultrasound and catscans. This technology is changing how we view data, as well as how common user applications are being constructed. The primary focus of the thesis is on the computer code necessary to compute the tracking of users. How the environment is generated, how users and objects are viewed by the computer, and how tracking codestructured on a basic level are some of the questions I cover in my thesis. Virtual reality is a technology well worth research, because it is the GUI of the future.
