MORA LUMBRERAS, Marva Angélica et al. VirtUATx: A Virtual Reality and Visualization Center. Polibits [online]. 2012, n.46, pp.67-71. ISSN 1870-9044.

The construction of a Virtual Reality and Visualization Center in a public or private University results in a series of benefits; it allows the students to interact with modern technology, to learn with different tools. Specifically, this paper focuses on a Virtual Reality and Visualization Center built at the Bachelor in Computer Engineering at the Autonomous University of Tlaxcala, this center is called VirtUATx. VirtUATx allows building different virtual environment multi-screen considering the head movements through a professional head tracker, a full navigation system by means of recognition of body movement's using Kinect or manual using keyboard. Furthermore, VirtUATx incorporates 3D object manipulation, anaglyphic and active stereoscopy and 3D sound. This Center is used in different courses, such as Research Seminars, Computer Graphics, Research Methodology, and Interaction Human-Computer, but in the future this center will benefit other bachelors.

Keywords : Virtual Reality; virtual world; immersion; stereoscopy; 3D sound; manipulation.
