Alumni Lunch & Learn: UAHuntsville CAVE demonstration with Gregory Reed
Have you ever wanted to fly above Chicago, the Grand Canyon, or even the Moon? Feel like Superman? Experience the eye of a storm? Take part in 3D movies? See your drawings come to life? Make sense of spreadsheets upon spreadsheets of data? Tour the Holodeck of Star Trek fame? See virtually anything in a new way?
The UAHuntsville CAVE, a part of the university's new Immersive Visualization Lab, is a 10' x 10' x 10' virtual space that feels much, much larger. The CAVE is all about immersion - it surrounds you with spectacular visuals and sound, representing environments limited only by imagination. As a new capability for UAHuntsville, the CAVE also facilitates research by students and professionals alike.
Join us for this Lunch & Learn and experience the CAVE first-hand.
