    For pt.1 see ibid., March/April (2000). Previously, the author discussed his design for a digital ceraunoscope: an ancient machine designed to simulate thunder and lightning. He talked about how cloud-to-ground lightning formed and how to write a program to generate synthetic lightning strokes that matches real data gathered for the Apollo space program. The article focuses on making thunder an in... View full abstract»

    The authors present a new inverse, interactive approach to acoustic design that applies optimization techniques to an acoustic simulation system. For a new building, the system may suggest optimal configurations that would not otherwise be considered; for a hall with modifiable components or for a renovation project, it may assist in optimizing an existing configuration. Our system allows the desi... View full abstract»

    The article reports on an integrated system which uses road congestion information to guide routing, both in advance and while in transit. It offers two novel features: historic information about congestion is collected and retained for use when planning routes; and GPS tracks vehicles while they undertake journeys, and the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) Short Message Service (SMS) ...

    Like Rome, Los Angeles was not built in a day, and if it had to be done again, thanks to modern planning, zoning, environmental, civic, and political considerations, LA might not get built at all. However, the Urban Simulation Team (UST) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and similar groups around the world are using interactive visual simulations (VizSims) and virtual reality (VR...

    The article outlines the development of the Rock 'n' Scroll input method which lets users gesture to scroll, select, and command an application without resorting to buttons, touchscreens, spoken commands, or other input methods. The Rock'n' Scroll user interface shows how inertial sensors in handheld devices can provide additional function beyond “tilt-to-scroll”. By also using them to... View full abstract»

    The author explores the seemingly well worn subject of distance based or remote visualization. Current practices in remote visualization tend to clump into two broad categories. One approach, called render-remote, is to render an image remotely, then transmit the image to the user. Another option, render-local, transfers raw data to the user, where it is then rendered on the local workstation. Wit... View full abstract»

    Medicine is one of the most promising areas for emerging computer graphics and virtual reality techniques. VR training simulators let surgeons practice on virtual body tissue and get the same feedback they would experience in performing a real operation. Hybrid VR systems permit medical practitioners to view the patient overlaid with 3D data sets derived from 3D scanners, thus providing doctors an... View full abstract»

    Information appliances take computing off the desk-top and into our everyday world. The article reviews current applications and predicts where they will lead in the near future. It classifies the use of information appliances into the following four categories: home use; office use; mobile professionals; specialist occupations. Common to all these categories is the importance of wireless communic... View full abstract»
