The DiVE is where we at Duke try to make virtual reality a daily reality. Here you can find some of the cool things we do. Here's the specs: The Duke immersive Virtual Environment (DiVE) came on-line seven years ago representing the fourth 6-sided CAVE-like system in the United States. The DiVE is a 3m x 3m x 3m stereoscopic rear projected room with head and hand tracking and real time computer graphics. All six surfaces -- the four walls, the ceiling and the floor -- are used as screens onto which computer graphics are displayed. The DiVE offers a fully immersive experience to the user, who literally walks into the virtual world. The user -- typically a researcher, educator or student -- is surrounded by the display and can interact with virtual objects. Stereo glasses provide depth perception, and a handheld "wand" controls navigation and virtual object manipulation.
