The research team of Modeling, Visualization, Interaction and Virtual Reality (MOVING) from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain; presented the ‘EstereoWall.’
This virtual wall can display any image and anyone equipped with a controller and 3D glasses can work his way in the liver of someone else or his mouth, and even the same brain.
“EsteroWall is system composed of a screen of 2,7 meters by 2 meters, a couple of projectors are behind it, a mirror, a positioning device, a conventional computer and a program developed by our team. With this we process the images in two dimensions, that would normally be turned into magnetic resonances, and we convert them into 3D images in a matter of minutes…,” explained Marta Fairen, one of the ten researchers that compose the group MOVING which was born in 1999, by the leadership of the professor Isabel Navazo.
The EstreoWall is currently been used in the museum that displays the recently discovered (December 2002) Pierolapithecus, which was the reason for the creation of the virtual wall. (AV)
