WID Virtual Environments

WID Virtual Environments is an emerging technologies research lab located on the lower level of the Discovery building on the University of Wisconsin – Madison campus.

Research interests amongst members of the group include perception in virtual reality, large scale displays, color perception, high resolution point cloud rendering, immersive visualization of scientific data, and VR/AR/MR for education.

The lab is home to a 6-sided CAVE VR Display system, a unique system that has been used for various federally funded research projects, for immersive visualization of campus research data, and for pre-visualization and design with industry groups.
