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
Ever wonder what a winter session course looks like at Virginia Tech? Take a peek into the virtual world that students immersed in for two weeks during the 2018 winter session.
For the second year, the Cube located in the Moss Arts Center, has been center stage for the University Honors Immersive Virtual Environment for Art, Data, and Research course.
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.
Ivica Ico Bukvic teaches composition and multimedia. “With our eyes, we only see what’s ahead of us. With our ears, we hear what is all around us.”
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. Documentation and discovery at the nexus of science, engineering, arts, and design will be on display at the Moss Arts Center. Join faculty, students, and community members who are crossing traditional boundaries to develop new possibilities for exploration, expression, and creativity.
Center for Human Computer Interaction
The Center for HCI (CHCI) at Virginia Tech is a university-wide research center that addresses both the facilitation and the foundational understanding of human interaction with and through technology. The CHCI excels in cross-disciplinary research on interactive computing that extends into the everyday life of individuals, groups, and societies.
Center for Research in SEAD Education
The Center for Research in SEAD Education serves as the university-level mechanism to strategically propagate expertise in research and evaluation related to formal and informal P-12 education in science, engineering arts, and design (SEAD).
