Cave Fibers: a new immersive visualization project

The SCIL, in collaboration with the Université de Sherbrooke’s Laboratoire d’Immersion et d’interaction humaine, has started a new student project aiming to bring tractography visualization to a CAVE-live environment.

You can find the project page here (Github), as well as a video showing the project in action on Youtube.

Thanks to Patrick Bellavance-Marcoux, Bachelor’s in Imaging science and digital media from the Université de Sherbrooke, for all the hard work on the project.

If you are interested in contributing to the project, please contact Jean-Christophe Houde or Maxime Descoteaux.
