The fully immersive CAVE C6 is a room with four 9’6” x 9’6 walls, a ceiling and a floor — all of which are projection screens, except for the floor, which is a clear plexi-glass surface. Behind each projection screen are two projectors, which form 3D rear projected images on each screen. The system also has a 5.1 surround sound audio system and ceiling microphones for two-way communication to the development lab. The C6 uses Intersense head and wand tracking for full user-viewpoint-dependent stereoscopic (3D) viewing. Ultrasonic tracking sensors embedded into the CAVE corners provide full tracking of the head and wand. An IP-based camera is mounted in the rear of the CAVE with the ability to record and stream video of the happenings in the space to other parts of the Discovery Building.
