To be clear, I did not develop this marvellous piece of software, but only migrated it to the CAVE system of the Johannes Kepler University (JKU), Linz, Austria. The software was developed by the great team at the Institute of Technical Computer Sciences and Telematics. I migrated the complete software package to the CAVE system, made it working with the VR interaction devices. I utilized IRIS Performer, OpenGL, CAVELib on SGIs to realize this project.

If you wonder how I was looking in 2000 – here some ‘screenshots’ of mine (there was no Facebook during these times…):
