I am sure it gave you so much a different perspective when you were writing the story to have actually experienced the cave first hand, didn't it, Cabe? I often write about some really interesting topics but wish I had the chance to experience them more. It's cool you had a chance to feel what it was really like.

It was pretty cool to use the room. I truly felt like I was in the virtual world, until I looked up or down. It would be great for gaming!

Haha, Ann, I like your use of the word "trippy" and how you cut to the chase here. That perfectly describes this technology! Trippy with a functional use...

I agree: this is downright trippy. Thanks for reporting on it, Cabe.

I really like these futuristic technology stories you write, Cabe. This seems like a really interesting technology--kind of reminds me of that video game/evironment "Second Life" except instead of an avatar, you actually can go into the world. (As an aside, what ever happened to "Second Life"? Do people still play it?) But this virtual cave also serves a functional design purpose, which makes it even more interesting.

I especially was impressed by the cost savings achieved by going from clay models to virtual reality models.  I'm sure that these savings allowed this system to quickly pay for itself.

Nice article, Cabe. Visualization and simulation technology has been expanding considerably in recent years. I saw a similar "cave" at the University of New Mexico last year. Absolutely stunning.
