ORTIZ TRIVINO, Jorge Eduardo  and  CIPAGAUTA, Rodolfo. A virtual art museum. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2006, vol.26, n.3, pp.78-84. ISSN 0120-5609.

This paper presents some indispensable technical aspects for designing an art museum based on virtual reality (VR) technology. A VR setting can be produced which is able to submerge users having a basic immersion level in a didactic, entertaining, cultural and artistic experience. Specialised tools, object-orientated programming language and low-cost peripheral equipment are suggested so that the VR experience can be developed and executed on reasonably-priced computers. The VR concept, characteristics, components, application and systems are analysed, as is the design for implementing it.

Keywords : virtual reality (VR); virtual reality system; VR hardware; VR software; virtual museum.
