About this title
Imagine walking through the virtual image of a house or sitting at the virtual wheel of a car you might like to buy. These 3-D images are made possible through a new language called VRML, which stands for virtual reality modeling language. This book is a complete tutorial that teaches you how to become an expert VRML programmer and gives you a VRML browser on the CD.Review:
Designed for the VRML beginner, VRML: Exploring Virtual Worlds on the Internet leads the reader through a series of well-organized, helpful chapters and exercises. The guide's logical sequence of topics and the authors' approachable writing style afford a solid understanding of the ins and outs of virtual worlds. The authors begin with a series of background chapters, which progress from basic concepts of computer graphics and virtual reality (VR) to the fundamentals of virtual worlds and the Web. The authors then introduce the reader to VR browsing software and exploration of worlds. Users establish a level of comfort with the subject and can easily jump into subsequent chapters that teach the VRML language and the creation of objects and worlds. The handbook wraps up with a thoughtful look into the future of VRML and what kind of impact the language might have as it evolves.
A great general guide, VRML: Exploring Virtual Worlds on the Internet provides specifications that include the latest standards release (2.0) without neglecting readers who are unfamiliar with earlier versions. A companion CD-ROM provides Windows VRML browsing software and example code for examples in the book.
