Real Time Graphics has ceased publication

September, 2003, was the last issue of Real Time Graphics.  All paid subscribers of that date will automatically receive a refund check for the balance of their subscription.  If you have  concerns over your refund,  please contact  rtg@cgsd.com.

Real Time Graphics  provide news and analysis related to virtual reality and simulation for over ten years. It ultimately fell victim to dwindling circulation.  The simulation industry consolidated considerable during the lifetime publication, so that while simulation remains a vital and growing technology, the market for a newletter diminished substantially.  The virtual reality industry bloomed in the mid nineties and subsequently died as fast as it grew.  The irony is that the fascination with the applications ended at about the time that graphics technology started to provide viable support at a reasonable price.  VR will make a comeback, we believe, but slowly, as compelling practical applications come to light.  The location-based entertainment business grew as part of the dot-com boom, and went bust accordingly. The potential there may one day be re-discovered.  Finally, we note that the entire newsletter industry has suffered with the growth of the internet. Times change.

We thank our many loyal subscribers and supporters over the years.
