Future Vision Technologies
Future Vision Technologies (FVT) was born in 1991 out a small team who met in the Advanced Digital Systems Lab at the University of Illinois in Urbana/Champaign - John Belmonte, David Frerichs, Matt Klapman, and Kevin Lee. Inspired by a common vision to change the world through low-cost, high-quality, virtual reality gear, the FVT team secured many firsts. In 1994, FVT was purchased by Fujitsu Microelectronics to form the core of a new 3D graphics card business. Soon thereafter, a small team spun out of that business to form what would become the 3D graphics leader, 3Dfx, now a part of Nvidia.
