Donald Clark Plan B: Amazing, mind-blowing ‘people’ possibilities in VR and AR

Donald Clark Plan B: Amazing, mind-blowing ‘people’ possibilities in VR and AR | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Higher Education | Scoop.it
When I demo VR to people they often struggle to see its potential application in the real world. One dimension they often miss is its potential to let you interact with other people - it’s social dimension. Far from being socially isolating, it may be socially liberating. The possibilities are mind-blowing.

CAVE2: Next-Generation Virtual-Reality and Visualization Hybrid Environment for Immersive Simulation and Information Analysis

CAVE2: Next-Generation Virtual-Reality and Visualization Hybrid Environment for Immersive Simulation and Information Analysis | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Higher Education | Scoop.it

CAVE2™, the next-generation large-scale virtual-reality environment, is a hybrid system that combines the benefits of both scalable-resolution display walls and virtual-reality systems to create a seamless 2D/3D environment that supports both information-rich analysis as well as virtual-reality simulation exploration at a resolution matching human visual acuity.

 

CAVE2 creates new opportunities for users to collaborate using both 2D and 3D. Today, all science is e-science: computers capture, filter, analyze and visualize data from instruments and simulations. CAVE2 serves as the lens of a virtual “telescope” or “microscope,” enabling users to simultaneously see and analyze one or more e-science datasets that reside in cyberspace.
