Fakespace Systems 
Fakespace Systems originated in 1988 as a pioneer in the development of immersive visualization and virtual reality technologies for research and commercial market applications. The founders of Fakespace believed in the premise that visualization systems should be "intuitive, easy to use and comfortable." Based on this, Fakespace Inc. created many of the industry’s first major interactive breakthroughs, including the first commercially available virtual reality system, the BOOM, and the first commercially available gesture recognition system, the Pinch Glove.
