VIRTUAL REALITY APPLICATION CENTER
Virtual Reality Application Center (VRAC) is an interdisciplinary
research center administered by the
Institute for Physical Research and Technology at
Iowa State University. It was founded in 1990 with
seed funds from the Carver Trust and Iowa State Unversity.
Since that time VRAC has grown rapidly, drawing faculty
and students from a variety of academic disciplines.
Our focus is the emerging field of engineering and science
applications of synthetic environments (SEs).
research involves the integration of humans and computers
with advanced interfaces to enable
visual, haptic, and audio interaction between users
and computer generated virtual environments.
