project seeks to expedite the creation of more compelling collaborative
VR applications using either the CAVE or Immersadesk VR display devices.
Tandem is a Distributed Interaction Framework for Collaborative VR applications.
It makes use of the CAVElib
for VR projection display support, and CAVERNsoft
for its networking. Its stategic use of object technology such as STL and
Design Patterns enables an architecure that exploits existing patterns in
Collaborative VR. This framework allows VR developers to spend more
time developing the application content and less time implementing generic
|This is a screen shot from a demo Tandem application. The model is borrowed from a work called Mitologies which is inspired by Dante's Inferno, Durer's woodcuts after the Apocalypse, and Wagner's The Ring. It is designed after a sketch by Leonardo Da Vinci of a church that was never built. Credit: Image courtesy of Hisham Bizri and Alan Cruz; EVL 1998.

|Architecture||Introduction to Tandem Architecture|
|Downloads||Tandem 1.0 is ready
Supported Platforms : IRIX 6.4+
Requirements: CAVElib 2.6+ , Peformer 2.2+ and CAVERNSoft if you wish to take
advantage of Tandem's network features. A port is currently in progress to the latest version of CAVERNSoft G2 so it is recommended not to develop any major networked applications at this time.
