It’s official! UMBC’s new PI^2 Immersive Hybrid Reality Lab (funded by Next Century and the NSF ) is up and running! The lab, also known as the virtual reality “cave” was created to reduce the distance between computers, data, and people. John McBeth, president, CEO and founder of Next Century said at the ceremony, “We’re at the beginning of a shift. This isn’t just about games anymore.”
