Multi-user Virtual Reality at Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology sought our expertise to create a custom immersive projection environment at the Cube,  a highly adaptable space for research and experimentation.  The Elumenati provided a unique design that met the Cube’s requirements, including a motion capture system and an existing 3D spatial audio system. These systems together create a social immersive environment, combining audio and visual technology. VR and AR devices are excellent for conveying immersive experiences on a small scale, but difficult to manage for over a dozen simultaneous users. The Cyclorama allows groups of people to experience the immersive visual and sonic environment at the same time.

Read about in more detail on our projects page, and watch a time-lapse of the buildout here. And if you’ll be in the area this October, the Virginia Tech Science Festival expects thousands of visitors to experience data visualization and sonification of the Belle II particle supercollider in the Cube the Moss Arts Center. Come and celebrate science in the Cyclorama!
