Ivan Sutherland pioneered computer graphics, human-computer interaction, and programming languages, all at once, when in the early 1960s, he created the landmark program Sketchpad, viewed by many as the earliest constraint programming language. He also created the first head mounted computer display, which is now termed virtual reality.
