A file format for representing 3D worlds online
VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language or Virtual Reality Markup Language) was a markup language that could be used to create three dimensional worlds on the World Wide Web, allowing users to interact with and explore these spaces in a virtual reality setting and to become ill from motion sickness.
Parisi and Pesce introduced and demoed VRML at the International World Wide Web Conference in November of 1994.
VRML was not used. It was sort of a good idea, but at the time of its introduction, the web was still in its infancy and bandwidth was very limited, hindering its use and progress. Often it's referred to when one wants to laugh at old web standards or designs that are now laughable, such as those found on GeoCities.
VRML has since been replaced by X3D, which also has limited applications.
- Nobody used this.
