Equipment

VR CAVE is a state-of-the-art virtual reality system which enables users to experience virtual environments in a fully immersive way. It consists of four projection screens (three back-projections, one front projection) where stereoscopic images are being projected. The user can literally walk-in virtual environments and move freely in an area of 2.50m x 1.85m x 2.50m. Further exploration and interaction can be achieved through the use of other specialised equipment, such as data gloves, etc.

The user can perceive the stereoscopic images using a pair of active stereo glasses in 3D, therefore increasing the sense of immersion and reducing the gap between physical and virtual reality. Moreover, the user’s head movements are tracked in real-time and are “translated” in movements in the virtual environment. Thus, by moving in real space the system automatically adjusts the projections according to the user’s current position and point-of-view, giving a more realistic feel.

VR CAVE currently supports two software APIs for the design, development and presentation of virtual reality applications: EON Studio and Unity3D.

VR CAVE has a modular design therefore it can be reconfigured into alternative setups depending on the applications’ requirements: (1) the Cube-shape where the screens form a cube with a 90 degrees between them, (2) the I-shape where the screens are aligned right next to each other at 180 degrees (7.5m x 1.85m stereo-flatscreen), and (3) the U-shape; an intermediate state between the Cube- and I-shapes.
