as "guru" of a growing technology, pioneered the
frontiers of Virtual Reality, a 3D world
rendered by a computer and experienced with
EyePhone goggles and sensor-equipped DataGloves.
The computer scientist with the
shoulder-length red dreadlocks - affectionately
dubbed by some a "Rastafarian Teddybear" -
founded the world's first VR company, VPL
Research Inc, which produced most of the world's
VR equipment for many years. VPL is now defunct.

|| Profiles: Negroponte:
Why Bits Matter|
|When Massachusetts Institute of
Technology Media Laboratory founder and digital
economy advocate Nicholas Negroponte makes a
prediction about the future you can't help but
sit up and listen. But his vision - however
close to the truth it may appear - can be
frightening. At a talk in Kuala Lumpur earlier
this year, his candid responses seemed
threatening even. |
Taking questions from
the floor, Negroponte tells a Xerox employee to
"exercise his options soonest". A newspaper
owner asking about the future of his industry,
is told, wryly: "The unfortunate thing about
newspapers is the word paper." Middle
management is belittled as relics of the past;
in fact middle anything, says Negroponte will
vanish without a trace. Asked how governments
should respond to the coming digital economy,
Negroponte says their only logical response is
to step aside.
audacity stems from the fact he has more often
been right than wrong.
