Chronicle of Higher Education makes note
of Viz-developed immersive environment


The Chronicle of Higher Education took note of an immersive environment created by faculty at Texas A&M's Department of Visualization, and its possible applications for natural science museums.

"With 3-D glasses, a semicircle of screens, surround sound, and a Wii video-game controller, users can experience the ultraviolet vision of a bird or the ultrasonic hearing of a whale, while navigating through a virtual world," said the Chronicle's Ben Terris in an Oct. 12 posting about the environment, "I'm Not There."
