NOTICE: Welcome back to the IQ-Station wiki! After changes by our site host, the wiki hasn't been functioning very well, so we have updated to MediaWiki 1.27, and things seem to be back on track. Now we just need to update the content! [2016/08/04]
Welcome to the IQ-Station Wiki for commodity-based low-cost VR
This site is a place where the community of users of lower-cost virtual reality displays can congregate and share information. Presently these are systems primarily constructed from Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components for a quality VR experience around the $10,000 to $15,000 price range.
The basic components of an IQ-station are:
Part of our community building efforts include bootcamps on Immersive Visualization. Thus far, we have hosted three successful events:
- Bootcamp in Indianapolis held March 25-27, 2013
- Bootcamp in Laramie held June 12-14, 2013
- Bootcamp in Little Rock held October 22-24, 2014
Additional bootcamps for 2015 are under consideration.
Most IQ-station systems presently in operation run VR applications built on one of two VR integration libraries:
- Toirt Samhlaigh
- Immersive ParaView
- VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics)
- ML2VR (Matlab to VR)
- Bino stereoscopic movie player
- XVS (John Stone's stereoscopic image viewer)
