From Mechdyne (the Fakespace folks) today:
Mechdyne Corporation and Iowa State University are making final preparations for the grand opening of what will be the most impressive virtual reality environment in the world; the 100 million pixel, six-sided C6 at the Virtual Reality Applications Center (VRAC). The public is invited to attend the April 26 opening as part of the Emerging Technologies Conference at the University from April 25 – 27.
The design of the new C6, developed by Mechdyne’s Fakespace display division, will create the most detailed, realistic virtual imagery ever. The system’s 100 million pixels is more than 16 times the resolution of typical immersive rooms. The C6 will more than double the resolution of the current world record holder, a 43 million pixel, five sided room also installed by Mechdyne in 2005. VRAC’s applications, including genetic research, engineering design reviews, virtual battlespace simulations and atomic microscope image analysis, are all expected to benefit from this new level of insight.
