Besides serious research, like viewing data from as many as 22,000 genes at once and training soldiers in urban combat, the room offers some cool games. The upgrades include a Hewlett-Packard computer cluster featuring 96 graphics processing units, 24 Sony digital projectors, an eight-channel audio system and ultrasonic motion tracking technology."
