Abstract
Open Tech will create an interactive multi-user collaboration product for immersive and desktop scientific visualization. This product will leverage our Virtual Reality Windowing Library to enable an easy to use collaboration interface that includes user lists, radars, maps, avatars, white boards, and virtual presentations. The product will also contain a software framework that enables developers to create new collaborative applications that will also run on immersive clusters and may include complex simulations and user interactions. COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS: Open Tech has identified an opportunity to use virtual Reality to enable distributed teams to collaborate more effectively than they can today. Using virtual reality all members of the team can interact with a shared world in which they can view the hand gestures of the other users, draw on an white board and point to items in a 2D or 3D "Power Point" presentation. When combined with video and voice communication this collaboration technology has the potential to change the way every day businesses collaborate. Open Tech can market this product to any business with a need for more effective collaboration.
