This paper describes the construction of a single screen, projection-based
VR display using commodity, or otherwise low-cost, components.
The display is based on Linux PCs, and uses polarized stereo.
Our aim is to create a system that is accessible to the many museums and
schools that do not have large budgets for exploring new technology.
In constructing this system we have been evaluating a number of options
for the screens, projectors, and computer hardware.
Projection based virtual reality, passive stereo, PC graphics
