VisWall at Tufts' Center for Scientific Visualization

A mechanical engineering student presents a virtual hang glider using the Visualization Wall at Tufts University's Center for Scientific Visualization. Tufts students built the hang glider for their senior design project. The Visualization Wall enables researchers to translate the most abstract, complex scientific concepts into clearer, more precise 3-D images than conventional visualization systems can create.
