Future science: Using 3D worlds to visualize data

Future science: Using 3D worlds to visualize data | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Take a walk through a human brain? Fly over the surface of Mars? Computer scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago are pushing science fiction closer to reality with a wraparound virtual world where a researcher wearing 3D glasses can do all that and more.

In the system, known as CAVE2, an 8-foot-high screen encircles the viewer 320 degrees. A panorama of images springs from 72 stereoscopic liquid crystal display panels, conveying a dizzying sense of being able to touch what’s not really there.

The Z Space display makes interactive 3-D seem mind-bogglingly real

The Z Space display makes interactive 3-D seem mind-bogglingly real | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Imagine being able to reach out and grab some of the 3-D objects you saw in the movie Avatar with your own hands. I recently tried a computer display that offers this sort of interactive experience—albeit on a smaller scale—and I think the technique could have many possible uses.

3D GameLab turn your classroom into a living game!

 

"3D GameLab, a quest-based online learning platform re-opens our closed beta on August 1st, as we kick off with a 3 week synchronous online summer camp for teachers and instructional designers, providing you the tools and the training to turn your class into a living game, or just a very cool place to learn! After it's over, you'll have a teacher dashboard and can invite up to 60 students to play their way through the curriculum, as well!"

 

KF: The 3DGameLab provides a 3 week immersive professional learning opportunity for educators wanting to shift to effective games-based approaches in their teaching and learning. The project seems to have a good track record and will challenge educators by taking them to learnign environments they've probably never considered.
