The University of California, Santa Barbara's AlloSphere Research Laboratory takes scientific data that is too small to see and hear and magnifies it to a human scale so researchers can better analyze the data and find new patterns.
"The goal of the AlloSphere instrument and research group is to conduct research in interactive visualization and multimodal representation of complex scientific data, while working closely with researchers in data interpretation and finding new patterns in the information," says AlloSphere Research Laboratory director JoAnn Kuchera-Morin.
The AlloSphere is a 33-foot diameter sphere built inside of a three-story echo-free cube. The AlloSphere can be applied to fields such as audiovisual technologies, abstract arts and art entertainment, green technology, computers and networking, education, nanotechnology, physics, materials science, geography and remote sensing, human perception, behavior and cognition, medicine, and telemedicine.
"The future goals are to build out the instrument to an intelligent reactive device making technology transparent to our every day experience, thus integrating information technology naturally into our various research platforms," Kuchera-Morin says.
