Mawson’s Huts VR on the EPICylinder
This image shows a portion of a 120 million pixel stereoscopic render of the photogrammetrically-reconstructed interior of Mawson’s Huts, displayed upon the EPICentre EPICylinder at UNSW. As far as I am aware, this is currently (2018) the highest resolution stereoscopic immersive display system in the world – right here in Sydney, Australia.
I’m thrilled that it won 3rd Prize in the OzViz 2018 Art+Science Competition , Australasia’s premiere scientific computer-visualisation conference and workshop.
The main point of interest for me is that it demonstrates that I will be able to run a fully-interactive stereoscopic 3D version of my Mawson’s Huts VR experience on ultra-high-definition display systems like this. Naturally, running at such resolution requires a lot of attention to detail, but I hope to have something satisfactory to demonstrate during 2019. Of course, it will downscale to consumer headsets as well.
