The development of an immersive environment to visually simplify complex situations, by minimizing distractions and maximizing information presented to the user, promises to re-define the current man-machine computer interface. This proposal will define a prototype for a seated immersive interface to transport the user around in an artificial/virtual environment. The environment will surround the user with abstract data representations (in the form of icons and windows) placed within 3-D models. Prolonged usage and ease of use are primary concerns of this design. The prototype's main componenets will include a Head-Mounted-Display with navigation and selection devices, and appropriate software. Work to be performed includes definition of the immersive interface, a functional specification of the required hardware, software, and development tools, plus evaluation, testing and integration of appropriate VR products.
