Affectionately referred to as the Holodeck, the DiVE is a virtual reality environment that allows scientists to immerse themselves in their research. From the DiVE website
: “The DiVE is a 3mx3mx3m stereoscopic rear projected room with head and hand tracking and real time computer graphics. All six surfaces – the four walls, the ceiling and the floor – are used as screens onto which computer graphics are displayed. The DiVE offers a fully immersive experience to the user, who literally walks into the virtual world.” Step inside the DiVE and be immediately transported to another place, from a 9000 year old archaeological site to the developing retina of an infant. “From flying through a neuro-chemical pathway, to standing in an ancient roman villa, virtual reality gives us the opportunity to engage in formerly inaccessible experiences.”
