3D Technology to Drive Research Breakthroughs
3D may be hot in Hollywood thanks to recent box-
3D ALIVE (Applied Laboratory for Immersive Visualisation Environments) was launched on 1 July at Monash University's Clayton campus by Deputy Secretary of the Victorian Department of Primary Industries, Dr Richard Aldous.
The 3D ALIVE facility consists of a 3D stereo display achieved from dual rear projection, plus a real-
"3D ALIVE will allow students and researchers across science, medicine, engineering and other disciplines to immerse, explore, question and evaluate endless scientific concepts, no matter how complex," said Professor Louis Moresi, who along with Dr Margarete Jadamec helped to establish the facility.
"Geoscientists will be able to explore massive spatially varying data volumes, such as global models of earthquake hypocenters, from a perspective which places the viewer inside a 3D Earth ... as demonstrated at the launch," said Facility Manager Dr Margarete Jadamec.
"Unlike simply viewing a 3D movie, the user is able to quite literally 'step inside' the large digital model of the earth, and examine movement in the subduction zones of 100km-
The launch was well-
The 3D ALIVE facility is designed for groups of two to 15 people and will be open for researchers collaborating on 3D models for presentations requiring 3D data rendering and for laboratory style teaching.
