What’s next after the Internet?With an eye on the far horizon, the president of WorldScape Inc., announced plans last December to install an immersive visualization theater in the Research Park on the edge of the campus of Los Alamos National Laboratory.Modeled after the LANL’s immersive “CAVE,” the multi-screen projection and viewing system that takes the viewer inside a nuclear explosion, WorldScape’s plan is to showcase its own production content and point collaborators to its production facilities going in soon with the New Mexico Film Studios in Budaghers.According to some crystal- ball-gazers, immersive 3-D may well become the medium that will convey the next quantum jump in information.“We’re definitely on track and leaving the station,” said Pete Rogina, who is also lead enthusiast for WorldScape’s mind-melding futurific ambitions. “We’re expecting to be out there and building in the coming months.”Rogina, who has been making regular visits to the Hill and has hired two former laboratory employees, said recently that a “Living Room of the Future” will be part of the facility.“It will have whatever technology is required to bring the immersive experience into the home,” he said.
