This new $2 million facility is an immersive virtual reality theater that supports researchers and faculty in their use of visualization, multimedia, high-performance computing, and networking technologies. It is currently the only academic facility of its kind in the West. The Portal has a 160x40-degree spherical screen that allows 3-D objects and virtual environments to be viewed with stereographics, localized and surround sound, tracking, and interactive object manipulation.
During this demo you will be virtually transported back in time to a 3-D recreation of an ancient city, and forward in time to an architect's vision of a 21st century building. You will see how stunning discoveries in medicine and science have come to fruition using the Portal's cutting edge capabilities. For more information about the Portal, see http://www.oac.ucla.edu/portal/default.htm.
