My interest in computer science kindled when I started playing games long time ago. I have imagined a kind of game that existed in real life, in which we had all the senses and broke the screen. As I grew older, I learned that all the games were programmed with machine languages. And therefore, when I had the chance to select my major before the university, I chose Computer Science without any doubt or hesitation.
During my undergraduate study at Iowa University, what I learn most are basic languages and algorithms, but some of the advanced courses and self-learning make me feel that computer science demonstrate the essence of natural science - evolution. For example, the development of website from static to dynamic, the progress of the sense of space from 2D to 3D technology, and the growth of perceptual functions from virtual simulation to Visualization, substantially come from the development of software engineering and its combination with optics or VLSI.
Virtual reality, replicating the simulated environment and letting the user interact in real world or imagined world, is what I am most interested in now. Virtual reality is not a new concept, and the origins can be traced as far as Ivan Sutherland’s “The Ultimate Display”. As what she said in her paper “The screen is a window through which one sees a virtual world. The challenge is to make that world look real, act real, sound real, feel real.” I could not agree more. I wish that I could be part of the members who…
