Lucas123 writes "Iowa State University's Virtual Reality Applications Center is completing a $5 million upgrade to its six-sided virtual reality room, which will now sport 100 megapixels of resolution. 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."
