Visualization Lab Construction Started

After months of planning, the construction of our visualization lab started on Monday. Already, I am impressed with the speed of their work in renovating the space that was a classroom.  Hopefully we can have the equipment installed by the end of the month.  Then we’ll start working on setting up the computers that drive the stereoscopic projection wall and monitor wall, ready for science by the end of the semester.  I plan to publish a few posts that outline the build process of the lab.
