SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 12, 1995--Virtual Reality Laboratories, Inc., a software publisher whose titles cover topics ranging from Mars to forms-filling, is making its initial appearance on the 1995 Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

The 6-year-old company, based in San Luis Obispo, Calif., specializes in high-quality scientific entertainment and business productivity software.

Leading products include Distant Suns: First Light, a multimedia desktop planetarium that takes users on an interactive tour of the solar system in addition to imparting basic astronomical information; Formbuster, a program that makes it possible to complete paper forms on computer; and VistaPro, a three-dimensional landscape generation tool.

"The public's response to these products bodes well for our company as well as for my pet project: a broadening of interest in space exploration and astronomy."
