PCVR Magazine was started by Joe Gradecki and his wife in Stoughton, WI. The purpose of the magazine was to provide a forum for developers of Virtual Reality on the PC platform. At its highest point, we were producing 4500 magazine bi-monthly. The magazine was sold on hundreds of newstands around the country.


PCVR Magazine is your information source for PC-Based Virtual Reality. We provide our readers with the most up-to-date information about the hardware and software necessary to achieve VR on their own PC.

Each issue of PCVR Magazine gives the reader three levels of information:

BEGINNER - If you are just starting in the world of VR, you will find easy-to-understand articles that give you information about our selected theme for that issue. Beginner articles might show you where to experience VR or expose you to the current version of a new piece of software

INTERMEDIATE - Those of you who are more advanced in VR will find articles about using a particular theme topic in their own virtual worlds. Learn how to code a virtual hand in a VR rendering package.

EXPERT - Written for the person who has extensive virtual experience, the expert articles will focus on reproducing VR hardware or software. These articles might show you how to build a arm-based head tracker or a head mounted display.

Kits and Products available for all levels of interest and skill
