ActiveCube is considered by many to be the ultimate interactive 3D visualisation system.
Over the last year Virtalis has designed and installed more multi-sided VR systems that any other company. With installations popping up all over the globe, the Virtalis ActiveCube (our version of a CAVE) is clearly setting the industry benchmark for both price and performance.
Like the other members of the ActiveWorks range, ActiveCube combines best in class technology. Virtalis’ ActiveCubes are either four or five sided with rear projected 3D virtual environments projected using powerful, specialist projectors. They are powered by Virtalis clustering technology and are capable of running a diverse range of software packages. Movements within the ActiveCube’s environment are tracked using a tracking system. This added functionality alters the perspective of the visuals according to the user’s position and orientation within the scene. The hand held controller allows the immersive experience to be enhanced further. The user can navigate through the virtual world, pick and manipulate component parts in real time and make decisions on the fly.
"The fact that the ActiveCube provides lifelike peripheral vision makes it much more personal and convincing than most VR systems deployed. The additional Virtalis developed software will be a terrific bonus for the Chemistry and Geology Departments and Virtalis’ software knowledge puts them head and shoulders above the rest."
