pp.148–153   A description of the Convolvotron developed at NASA/Ames Laboratory in the late 1980s. Basically an early HRTF system modelling the human outer ears' perception of audio. Interesting for a mention of historical work in the positioning of sound in 3D virtual reality and early use of the term 'auditory visualization'.   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
