the cyberscope by Simsalabim is a *stereo-opticon* like device that is
very inexpensive and brings remarkable 3D imaging toi the desktop.

this is a local viewer ( client ) issue, and thus has little bearing
on the questions of the VRML structure itself.

again is an issue of the localised viewer.
interesting use of the word *tricked* though.
As a magician and a VR researcher, I have long
understood that the term *illusion is virtually the same term as
Virtual reality. Of course it is also virtually the same as
Virtual reality industry as well :-)
But one day the illusions will all be ripped away, and what we do here,
as well as work done in other efforts will stand as an interface to the
media selections of tomorrow.
