The Responsive Workbench is a new type of VR system using head-tracking and stereoscopic rendering with a horizontal screen using CRT-projection technology. The idea is to mimic a workbench, to simulate discipline where working over a table is already the natural way of working for the practitioner.
For instance, the responsive workbench was used by doctors for medical training displaying a virtual patient on the workbench. Moreover, engineers used it to observe the result of a computational fluids dynamics simulation to ensure the aerodynamism of their locomotive. All interactions were done through a tracked stylus, using the same technology of the stereoscopic glasses.
