Why 3D graphics?
We live in a 3D world, but we are forced to communicate with computers through a 2D interface (screen, keyboard, and mouse) based on the centuries-old notion of the printed page. While this interface is familiar, it is entirely inappropriate for many applications. We need a new generation of computers that can interact more naturally with humans in a 3D world.
