UCSB Allosphere Fieldtrip

On Wednesday, April 23rd, a team of Fishbon Event Lab operatives travelled to the UCSB campus for a briefing and demonstration by Wes, Graham, Mark David, and Marcos about the Allosphere Project. The 60' diameter sphere is located in a special sound proof chamber in the new Nanosciences Building. With the capability to visualize objects at the molecular level, the project will be outfitted with 14 high end 3-D projectors, an impressive sound system and custom software. The applications shown were a brain simulation which allows viewers to observe electrical activity in the brain with MRI data. Later in the evening, Graham and Wes showed their amazing music and graphics app and encouraged hands-on participation from agents in attendance.
