ICME invites the campus community to the HIVE Xperience, an open house opportunity to see Stanford’s immersive visualization environment in action.  This event features collaborative visualization and research projects taking place in the HANA Immersive Visualization Environment (HIVE). Join us on Thursday, November 2 from 11am-2pm at Huang Engineering Center, B050 (basement level). 

Tentative Schedule*

11:00 - 11:30 Stace Maples, Geospatial Manager, Stanford Geospatial Center
See how the use of satellite imagery and humanitarian relief infrastructure on the HIVE's massive screen allows for the identification of the current locations of highly mobile nomadic pastoralists, and enables Stanford Medical School researcher, Hannah Binzen Wild, to collect the first baseline maternal health survey for the Nyangatom, of the South Omo River region in Ethiopia.

11:30 - 12:30 Nick Stoick, Microsoft
Learn about the HoloLens and how its use can impact your research.

12:30 - 1:30 Sergey Doronichev, Schlumberger
Experience a Virtual Reality journey to the drilling rig. 

1:30 - 2:00 Casey Fleeter and Veronica Toro, Stanford Cardiovascular Biomechanics Computation Lab
The Stanford Division of Pediatric Cardiology and Department of Engineering have collaborated to exhibit the Stanford Virtual Heart at the HIVE. Developed by Lighthaus Inc, the Stanford Virtual Heart is an immersive and interactive virtual reality (VR) experience in congenital heart disease. Students and trainees can interact with individual hearts and teleport inside a heart with a congenital heart defect, while displaying the VR heart on the massive high fidelity HIVE screen. Drs. Alison Marsden and David Axelrod continue to collaborate as they bring the complete congenital heart disease experience to life at the HIVE. The Stanford Virtual Heart was developed with support from the Betty Irene Moore Children’s Heart Center at Stanford and Oculus VR.

*The HIVE Xperience is also a chance for you to view your own research on a massive scale --- So, feel free to bring your own images!
