Augmented Reality Sandbox
The Augmented Reality Sandbox is an educational tool developed to educate users on earth science systems, real-time integration of augmented reality systems, and visual graphic effects on simulations.
The components of the AR Sandbox were developed from the UC Davis SARndbx Project Page, but vary slightly based on the equipment available during the time of construction.
The AR Sandbox is located in the EAST Conference Room (JBHT 263), just off the atrium in the J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. Center for Academic Excellence.
Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset
The Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset is a virtual reality component that provides the user with a first-person, immersive visual experience. Using a high-resolution stereo display in the headset and a low-latency head tracking system, users can dynamically interact with digital 3D environments in a natural, intuitive manner. Content can be created in commercial, off-the-shelf 3D game development software, such as Unity 3D or the Unreal Engine, or through custom programming, using the Oculus Software Development Kit.
CAST currently has both the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DevKit 2) and the first-generation Development Kit (DevKit).
RazorVue Multi-Touch Collaborative Interface
The RazorVue Multi-touch Collaborative Interface is a next generation platform for research into human-computer interactions. RazorVue is a high-resolution multi-touch screen that works like a tablet, but at 10 feet wide and 4 feet high it is the size of a small movie screen. With the multi-touch screen interface, the user can interact with data using simple hand gestures, and provides exciting new opportunities for researchers to interact with complex data in many different disciplines.
RazorVue is a collaborative effort of CAST and the Arkansas High Performance Computing Center. The design and hardware for RazorVue was funded by the National Science Foundation CI-TRAIN Project (EPS 0918970) and the Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC). RazorVue is located in the EAST Conference Room (JBHT 263), just off the atrium in the J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. Center for Academic Excellence.
