Shared immersive technology can free complicated designs from the confines of flat screens and bring them to life around you. If you create 3D, CAD, CGI, BIM, panoramic or 360° photos or films, you can step inside your content to manipulate it, discuss it or review it. And, because it’s shared, groups of people can experience your visualisations together.
It was this capability that The University of Tromsø (UiT) - The Arctic University of Norway - wanted to investigate with Igloo tech. UiT is the world's northernmost university. Its research contributes on a regional, national and international level, with specialities in the polar environment, climate research, telemedicine, medical biology and space physics.
