Create studio


Through incorporating new materials, objects, and methods for creativity, the Create Studio hosts the tools to turn ideas into working prototypes. Featuring two 3D printers, laser cutting, basic hand tools, soldering supplies, electronic testing equipment, and more, the Create Studio offers a practical workbench to bring life to the ideas of the ICAT students and faculty.

Experience studio


The Experience Studio is designed as a flexible space for ICAT researchers to create, explore, and document a variety of still and immersive environments, including video games, augmented reality, motion tracked virtual collaboration, and mixed reality performance. Unique features of this space include a two-story projection wall with green screen and an open grid ceiling for flexible lighting and sound exploration.

Perform studio


Perform Studio is where arts, technology, and creativity meet human mind and body. Using the state-of-the-art acoustic space with multichannel audio, motion capture system and dynamic lighting, here ICAT researchers study human gesture, emotion, spatialization of audio-visual stimuli, and embodied interaction over great distances, as well as performance in its broadest context.
