Rowan University in New Jersey is working on a 3D computer system with screens that wrap around a 20-foot by 20-foot space able to fit up to 25 people. Students want the space to be where engineers and non-engineers can work together and transport information to nearby screens in real time. "This is a tool for engineering design. It is not just a graphics visualization ... you are actually simulating things," said Shreekanth Mandayam, a Rowan executive.
