Christie 3D CAVE Owns

Christie, known for expensive, high-end projectors, is 1-upping themselves. This time they are making a 3D CAVE for Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City, using 8 of their UHD 1920x1920 (3.68 megapixels) 3 chip DLP 3D projectors.

"The ICB's CAVE facility is a powerful new tool that is helping us attract the best and brightest minds in the world," remarked Dr. Harel Weinstein. "We are able to explore images at the molecular and cellular level with a clarity and precision that was previously unattainable. Images of tissues and biological objects can be twisted, turned and expanded, viewed layer by layer with the flick of the wrist, allowing for an unmatched level of inspection that engulfs researchers in colors and details."

Sounds good, but I can only imagine this in a more "fun" setting, like a game environment. Oh, I guess that science and medicine is more important, somehow.
