Bringing virtual reality to the lab

Thursday, 26 July, 2001

The Visualisation and Advanced Computation Laboratory (ViSAC) based at the University of Queensland is a $2 million computing resource that will allow researchers to access visualisation tools to produce better and more efficient research.

This virtual reality facility differs to the other major one in Australia, at RMIT ibn Victoria, because the work environment is actually set up inside the virtual reality lab. Here, researchers will feel as if they are within a complex 3D structure as they study subjects like the operation of living human cells.
