Wireframe Model

The wireframe model is the simplest of the 3D VR systems, and the earliest. Only the vertices of an object are displayed, there are no solid faces. Wireframe is computationally very simple, and runs at blazing speed, but is unbelievably confusing and disorientating at any degree of immersion.

VR Cultural Icons > Joe 90
Joe 90 was a 1968 Supermarionation creation of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. Basically the same people who made Thunderbirds, using the same puppetry and radio controlled model technology. It was also the last supermarionation production.

This tome is, as the4 title suggests, more of an overview for the subject than a detailed how-to. It covers everything from the very basics of computerised model animation, right through rigging and boning, on to timing and lighting ? but it does so without going into painstaking detail on any one topic.
