about.com article by Sandy Ressler Dec 1999
This article was about the 3D interface to the Boeing and Epileptic Bots for one of the SRL What Is Real pre-show teasers in 1998. Sandy mentions the Tokyo show as well where I wrote 3 systems to operate the Pitching Machine, Air Launcher, and Track Robot over the web. This show was the first time a user ran a machine remotely with no supervision during an actual show. The Track Robot was driven by someone at the ICC for 15 minutes during the show at Yoyogi Park. More on that show here.
