The Weill Cornell Visualization Facility is the world’s first high definition 3D virtual reality environment. It uses the highest resolution blended images possible, projected on three walls and a walk-on floor.

An interactive tracking device, worn by the primary user, coupled with a hand-held electronic wand to manipulate the images, allows multiple researchers to “move around” simultaneously within a three-dimensional data set or structure.

3D immersive technology at Weill Cornell Medical College enables visionary breakthroughs in biomedical research — Vanessa Borcherding, System Administrator, Institute for Computational Biomedicine (ICB) at Weill Cornell provides an in-depth look at how Christie’s 3D technology is utilized.
