Info

Myron Kruger jumps in front of a VideoPlace screen. Kruger designed this system to allow people to interface directly with computers. The operator stands in front of this large, backlit screen. A video camera is used to form an image of the silhouette - the computer then interprets different poses or actions as different commands. The results are displayed on an equally- large video screen, the image of the operator being manipulated in response to the commands. Kruger was the first to use the term 'artificial reality' for this concept. Model released. (1990)
