Fog Harp aims to develop a full scale model to test a promising, potentially revolutionary fog collecting technology.
Cube Fest: Massively Multichannel Music, a three-day spatial music festival produced in partnership with ICAT and the Moss Arts Center.
The goal of this project is to develop a new immersive educational tool for experimental subatomic physics using a virtual reality (visual + sound) world in the ICAT Cube.
This project aims to create a learning environment that is a hands-on, mixed-reality exhibit of the human experience in the contested landscape of World War I.
A university-level research institute positioned at the nexus of the arts, design, engineering and science
Most of us learn by using our eyes. Whether it’s reading or poring over formulas, graphs and charts, it’s a mostly visual experience. Now, professors at Virginia Tech are exploring a new way to add another dimension to teaching and learning by transforming data into sound.
The theme of the 2018 ICAT Creativity and Innovation Day is Trace, as in (1) to find or discover by investigation, (2) to take a particular path or route, (3) an indication of the existence of something, palimpsest, (4) a small road.
Cube Fest 2018 is a festival featuring one of the largest multichannel audio systems on the planet, the Cube. We invite composers, musicians, and sound artists to submit works for large numbers of loudspeakers, for presentation at CUBE Fest 2018.
Humanoid robots are currently being developed for hazard response in industrial facilities for the DARPA Robotic Challenge (DRC) and as a watch/inspector/first responder onboard U.S. Navy ships. In both applications, the exterior panels of the robot need to
