Ball State University

This presentation will present a current simulation project from the Institute for DIgital Intermedia Arts at Ball State University, developed using Unity 3D and Jibe by Reaction Grid. John Fillwalk, Director of IDIA Lab will discuss a multi-user virtual environment interpreting Hadrian's Villa - an ancient Roman site in Tivoli, Italy. For this project IDIA Lab is developing a solar tracking interface connecting a NASA/JPL database to Jibe/Unity to control the position of sun in 130 CE, a custom avatar with motion captured gestures, dynamic weather systems, and native vegetation and terrain models. This project is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation through research of Dr. Bernard Frischer, Director of the Virtual World Heritage Laboratory at the University of Virginia.
