CAVE2 Virtual Environment (Image 17)

January 11, 2013
The CAVE2™ system is a next-generation, large-scale, virtual environment--a room in which images are seamlessly displayed so as to immerse an observer in a cyber world of 3-D data. Here, an architectural model of the University of California, San Diego's recently dedicated Structural and Materials Engineering building is shown in the CAVE2 system by Arthur Nishimoto, a research assistant at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory's (EVL) and computer science graduate student. The Graphics, Visualization and Virtual Reality Laboratory (GRAVITY) at the Jacobs School of Engineering produced the building model. Calit2's CalVR software was used to display the 3-D model in the CAVE2 system. EVL is located at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This research is supported by a National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation grant under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The award, "MRI-R2: Development of the Next-generation CAVE Virtual Environment (NG-CAVE)" (grant CNS 09-59053), is under the direction of Andrew E. Johnson, Jason Leigh, Maxine D. Brown and Tom Peterka, May 2010 to April 2013. You can learn more about research in the CAVE2 system in NSF press release 12-228, State-of-the-Art Virtual Reality System Is Key to Medical Discovery.
