Cool reality cave

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.

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

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...

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!

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.

Cabe.

I recently read your article, from Oct 2013, about the Dassault Cave, Dassault has a great product. That being said, I would like to give you the opportuntity to do a follow about the Cave facility we have in Sterling Heights, MI. We have a four wall version and have established a non profit organization to support K-12 STEM activites, Government and Unversity reseach activities, and to promote educational awareness of modeling, simulation and visualization technologies. Please let me know if you have any interest.

Arthur,

With such an incredible resource do you also make it available for commercial projects or for private sector companies to collaborate with government?

Thanks

The broad answer to your question is yes the Cave is available for private and public sector use. Being a non profit I have some restrictions on private use for profit, but we should discuss them on a case by case basis.  The web site will give you further information on Cave usages, You can find our address if you search ravecave organization.

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.
