Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mark Bolas is a researcher exploring perception, agency, and intelligence. He is an Associate Professor of Interactive Media in the USC Interactive Media Division, USC School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California, Director of their Interactive Narrative and Immersive Technologies Lab, Director of Mixed Reality Laboratory at USC's Institute of Creative Technology, and chairman of Fakespace Labs in Mountain View, California. Bolas majored in Physics and minored in Music at University of California, San Diego. He holds an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. Bolas's 1988-89 thesis work "Design and Virtual Environments" was done under the direction of Rolf Faste in Stanford's design program and Scott Fisher at NASA Ames Research Center. It was among the first efforts to map the breadth of virtual reality as a new medium. This effort led Bolas toward a basic model for immersive experience design, concluding that the medium's power to deeply transport a user is closely tied to finding an appropriate balance between realism and abstraction.show more
