In a collaborative group effort, this course will create a wiki that reviews the current state of software for creating virtual and augmented reality artifacts. We will target three software uses: entertainment, education, and science. We will investigate the capabilities of software for head-mounted displays (HMDs), big-metal displays like caves and the yurt, and, as a baseline, desktop displays. We will consider software at different levels of the stack including graphics and visualization libraries, prototype application frameworks, game engines, and stand-alone applications. Software evaluation will include web research, hands-on case studies, and surveying.
