Future Lab radio is sponsored by Intel Labs and is available on Intel Free Press and through iTunes.  

Researchers are investigating how to build virtual environments in which hundreds or thousands of participants can log in and interact with each other. The applications go beyond gaming. Simulations are used for meetings, organizational operations and even product branding. Scientists are discovering how to meet the challenges of creating 3D spaces for many users to explore, collaborate, and interact in real time.

Interviewees:
Douglas Maxwell, Science and Technology Manager, US Army Simulation Training Technology Center, Orlando, FL
Mic Bowman, Principal Engineer, Intel Labs, OR
Dan Lake, Researcher, Intel Labs, Oregon
