The CAVE is a multi-person, room-sized, high-resolution, 3D video and audio environment. Four projectors are used to throw full-color, computer-generated images onto three walls and the floor. In the CAVE all perspectives are calculated from the point of view of the user. A head tracker provides information about the user's position. Offset images are calculated for each eye. To experience the stereo effect, the user wears active stereo glasses which alternately block the left and right eye.
