VR Juggler and its Architecture

Presenter: Carolina Cruz-Neira and others from the Virtual Reality Applications Center (VRAC) at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa

Monday, October 17 2 p.m. ARSC Discovery Lab, 375C Rasmuson

Virtual reality environments require sophisticated software tools to be effective. Two of today's most important are VR Juggler and OpenSG, both under development at the Virtual Reality Applications Center (VRAC) at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. This presentation is intended to give a general computer-savvy audience an inside look at VR Juggler: how it works, what it can be used for and how developers can get started using it. The presenters are key leaders and developers at VRAC. The presentation will include live demonstrations of VR Juggler capabilities, as well as behind-the-scenes looks at how things work.
