Virtual Dictionary


A C-Wall is related to CAVE systems, in that it uses the same highly immersive VR as CAVE systems, except that, instead of surrounding the user in a room where the virtual world is back-projected on EVERY surface, only one wall is used.

C-Walls are a very young technology, the first prototypes being produced in 2002, and improve on CAVE with minimal space installations, and superior polarization to ensure each eye recieves a different image.

A Dark World
It is beyond dark, it is pitch black. No motes of light, to glittering beams, no nothing. You blink and cannot tell if you did just blink or not. Away in the distance a humming begins. You hear it, and turn towards it. It is coming from your left, and down a ways. Beyond that you cannot tell. Reaching out, you grasp at empty air. The fear rises as you reach out for something, anything to grasp on, and through some flailing, you find a smooth wall.
