Computer Science at the Science Fair

Today  the department took part in the first ever Hull University “Big Bang Science Fair.

We had 3d Virtual Reality displays that let you discover what it is like on top of a wind turbine tower out in the North Sea. We also had interactive computer generated art. 

We also set up our 3D printer. We are going to use the printer to support student projects and staff research, we have already been using it to print components for our “robot swam”.

Here you can see the Wind Turbine simulation system and the Occulus Rift that we are using with it. In the background you can see our generative art system.
