||Jinx :: http://www.lsi.usp.br/interativos/nrv/jinx.html
JINX is a fully distributed virtual environments
browser, which has a special support for commodity computer
clusters and immersive visualization devices. It intends
to be fast and easy to use to develop virtual reality
applications based on the X3D format, enabling great flexibility
for displays and interaction devices. JINX provides support
for nodes synchronization and resources sharing, from
Framelock to Datalock.
||Web3D :: http://www.web3d.org
Web3D is the home of X3D, the format used in this project.
X3D is a powerful and extensible open file format standard
for 3D visual effects, behavioral modelling and interaction.
It provides an XML-encoded scene. The XML encoding enables
3D to be incorporated into web services architectures
and distributed environments, and facilitates moving 3D
data between applications.
||Interativos :: http://www.lsi.usp.br/interativos
Interativos is the group that built this project. It stays
inside the University of São Paulo. Beside researches
in Virtual Reality the group also works with Digital TV,
Telemedicine, Content Creation and Entertainment.
||Finep :: http://www.finep.gov.br
Promote and sponsor innovation and research in companies,
universities, research centers, govern among others, to
economic and socially develop Brazil. This is the most
important sponsoring institute for our laboratory. It
was responsible to sponsor the construction of our Cave,
the first one in Latin America. Among many other projects
||Galileo do Brasil :: http://www.galileobrasil.com.br
Galileo provides the travel industry with reliable, accurate
access to inventory, schedule, and pricing information.
They are one of the world’s leading providers of
electronic global distribution services, connecting approximately
44,000 travel agency locations to 470 airlines, 24 car
rental companies, 56,000 hotel properties, 430 tour operators
and all major cruise lines throughout the world. Galileo
was the first company to sponsor this project that was
used in a touristy conference at Rio de Janeiro. They
also supported us with Images and information about Rio
Absolut technologies is the most important Brazilian company
working with Virtual Reality. It was established in Brazil
in 1998, at Salvador (BA). They sell any kind of Vritual
Reality products but also they have many important projects
with projection thechnologies in many sites inside and
outside Brazil. The Hang-glider structure was developed
and customized at Absolut, that has it as a product.
||Itautec-Philco :: http://www.itautec.com.br
Itautec Philco is a 100% Brazilian company with presence
in the IT market, Consumer Products, Components and Services
since 1979. The are another sponsor of the laboratory,
but also have very powerful computers. The computers used
to develop and run were provided from Itautec.
|| Intersense :: http://www.isense.com
InterSense, a leader in precision motion tracking, utilizes
inertial-based technology to deliver fast, accurate, driftless
motion tracking solutions free of the lag and jitter common
to traditional motion tracking systems. InterSense's technologies,
originally developed at MIT, have set a new standard in
motion tracking by significantly improving upon the precision,
performance and price of magnetic, optical and mechanical
trackers. The Intersense is used together with the HMD
enabling the user to see everywhere.
||HMD :: http://www.i-glasses.com
i-O Display Systems, LLC ("IOD") manufacturers
personal display devices and stereoscopic 3D products
for both video and computer uses. Being lightweight and
wearable, i-glasses provide a portable monitoring solution
unmatched by any other device currently on the market.
i-glasses is used in the HMD solution.
|| OpenSceneGraph :: http://www.openscenegraph.org/featuresngoals
The project was started as a hobby by Don Burns in 1998,
as means of porting a hang gliding simulator written on
top of the Performer scene graph running on IRIX to what
was then a humble Linux PC. The Open Scene Graph is a
open source high peformance 3D graphics toolkit, used
by application developers in fields such as visual simulation,
games, virtual reality, scientific visualization and modelling.
Written entirely in Standard C++ and OpenGL it runs on
all Windows platforms, OSX, Linux, IRIX, Solaris and FreeBSD
operating systems. OpenSceneGraph was not used in this
project, but this project is curios because has a very
similar story to our project.
||X3D-Edit :: http://www.web3d.org/x3d
X3D-Edit is a graphics file editor for Extensible 3D (X3D)
that enables simple error-free editing, authoring and
validation of X3D or VRML scene-graph files. Context-sensitive
tooltips provide concise summaries of each VRML node and
attribute. These tooltips simplify authoring and improve
understanding for novice and expert users alike.
||Maya :: http://www.alias.com/eng/products-services/maya
Maya software of Alias Wavefront is the world’s
most powerfully integrated 3D modeling, animation, effects,
and rendering solution. Maya also adds to the quality
and realism of 2D graphics.
