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).

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
