Come visit us at the intersection of Technology and Visualization. During your 30-minute visit, you will have the opportunity to experience virtual reality first-hand and learn about the research being done by the LEL. Be ready to test out the Oculus© (the newest personal visualization experience) or slip on 3-D glasses, step into a 10 x 10 x 10 foot cube (the “CAVE”), and be transported to another world. You will leave imagining the possibilities.
