    Cubee: Thinking Inside The Box



    Cubee is an interactive cubic fish tank VR display that is suspended to enable viewing from all sides and free manipulation. The display motion is mapped into the virtual scene to create a compelling interaction metaphor of objects inside a box. The system presents a tangible way to evaluate interactive realism of dynamic simulations.

    The goal of the Cubee exhibit is to create a unique physical experience with computer-generated, physics-based animation through an interactive 3D display system. Cubee brings dynamic simulation into the participant’s physical space and supports interaction that maintains a coherent relationship between the virtual and physical worlds.
