Cover Story

The Metaverse:
Projecting Us Into the Future
UK computer scientists Jim Griffioen, Ken Calvert, Zongming Fei, Christopher Jaynes, and Brent Seales are creating a new "virtual reality," where we will be surrounded by projected computer images. Immersive surgery and scientific modeling are just two applications for this exciting technology. This immersive experience will be networked to special rooms across campus and, eventually, across the world.
