ABOUT THE TOUR

Ribit through Data61 has partnered with the UNSW Expanded Perception and Interaction Centre (EPICentre), a pioneering high performance visualisation facility that builds on decades of expertise in the design of interactive virtual environments and visualisation applications to host an exclusive student tour and showcase of the technology.

We will demonstrate to you the Virtual Reality system of the Future, our EPICylinder. Allowing collaborative data exploration on its almost 120 million pixel real-estate, the cylindrical screen is the highest resolution screen in the world. We will also demonstrate the six metre Full-Dome, and unique Mixed Reality (XR-Lab).

EPICentre forges new territory in integrated thinking (artistic and scientific) to accelerate human understanding of complex datasets and ultra-scale imagery. Focused on inter-disciplinary science, EPICentre:

  • Advances new paradigms for scientific discovery (leading to scientific break-throughs)
  • Develops an immersive pedagogy for teaching and learning (learning while doing) (leading to powerful new educational tools and learning outcomes, driving down costs)
  • Engages public through the creation of unique user experiences (transforming public understand leading to healthier communities)
  • Creates powerful decision making tools for policymakers
