The Portal at the TU Berlin is an immersive Virtual Reality theater for mathematical visualization and research. Most applications use jReality.
The VisorLab is a 3D virtual environment at the CCNY Department of Mathematics under the direction of Prof. Peter Brinkmann. It is equipped with a large screen for 3D stereo projection and an eight-channel audio system for spatialized sound. While the primary focus is on mathematical visualization and sonification, the lab has been designed to facilitate collaboration with researchers in other fields.
From the Gavrog web-page: ?The purpose of Gavrog is to develop an integrated Java library for nets (a.k.a. graphs) and other structures that can be described in terms of nets ? the reticular aspect ? which are situated (mostly) in ordinary space and show a high geometric symmetry ? the ornament aspect. Examples of these are crystal nets, periodic ornaments and both 2- and 3-dimensional tilings.?
uses jReality to visualize polytopes and graphs and to interact with the polymake kernel.
The daytar group creates interactive art, many projects use jreality.
The picture shows seidesein, an interactive environment, which explores communication in virtual 3D space. Two users are embedded into virtual space each via an “avatar”, which is a virtual veil-like mirror, i.e. a mirror which feels like a silky veil floating in a water-like substance.
There are also other interesting projects using jreality in the daytar art section.
in fall 2005 the jReality group collaborated with the Institute for Geodesy here at the TU Berlin to create an animated flyby of the planet Mars featuring new data collected from the Mars Express project and processed by the Institute of Geodesy. This demo was shown in stereo as part of the Erstsemestertag 2005 and has been shown repeated times since then. (Play fast movie file.) (Play slow movie file.)
When the Unicat initiative approached the jReality group for help in presenting an animation of their proposed Buddy Bear project, we were able to draw on our experience with the Matheon Buddy Bear to meet their needs. The result was a real-time animation which was presented at the opening ceremony of Unicat in May, 2008. Play animation
The jReality team collaborated with a Berlin media firm jutojo to create imagery for the official opening ceremony in January 2008 for the ''Year of Mathematics'' in Germany. Using software provided by jReality group, the members of jutojo created this animation, based on the theory of path curves developed by Sophus Lie and Felix Klein in the 19th century.
