Since geomview is controllable by an external program through the command language, a program can use data from an exotic tracking device to contruct positioning commands for objects or cameras. Nils McCarthy has tried this last year with the low-end PowerGlove. The PowerGlove was actually hooked up to a NeXT, since there was public domain software for the high resolution mode of the glove for the NeXT but only low-res for the SGI. You can get details from him (nils at geom.umn.edu). There is a geomview module for stereo viewing, which might be adaptable for headgear use, written by Stuart Levy (slevy at geom.umn.edu, is on the software alias). > Could you please mail me the latest instructions on how to ftp geomview > etc.?

Geomview is available via anonymous ftp from geom.umn.edu. If you do not know how to use anonymous ftp, I can send details. The most current version is consists of documentation, executables for geomview and many modules, and data files. We will eventually get together a new source release. Geomview should work on any Silicon Graphics workstation. I think the minimum memory that SGIs are shipped with is 16MB, which is fine. As usual, more memory often means better performance.
