CALIT2 3-D Caves in Atkinson

Although they sound like something out of science fiction, these caves are a virtual-reality environment that allow you to venture into worlds as small as nanoparticles and as big as the cosmos?permitting scientists new insights that could fuel discoveries in many fields. The CAVEs are five-sided virtual reality (VR) rooms where scientific models and animations are projected in super high definition stereo on 360-degree screens surrounding you, and onto the floor as well. Thanks to the rooms? unique shape and special screens that allow you to use 3D polarizing glasses, you can fly over a strand of DNA and look in front, behind and below you, or navigate through the superstructure of a building to detect where damage from an earthquake may have occurred. The Explore Earth Cave immerses you in a walk through the redwoods or a visit to the Luxor in Egypt. Adding to the virtual reality in the CAVEs is the surround sound system, which harnesses recent advances in wave field synthesis?a way to maximize the perception of many channels of sound coming from different sides of the room.

The TourCAVE is a lower cost version of the NexCAVE. It consists of 14 65" LG 3DTVs which we turned on their sides. The displays support passive stereo with circular polarization at full HD resolution. Our system has roughly 28 Megapixels, or 14 Megapixels per eye (7560x3840 pixels). The TourCAVE is powered by 7 high end graphics PCs with dual Nvidia GeForce 580 graphics cards. We use an ART Smarttrack system for head and wand tracking, and use a Gyration Gyromouse as the input de
