Virtual Reality Programmer - Computer Science

This project will look at how space affects design in building virtual worlds, buildings, and spaces. This project will work to pull real-time weather data, visualize it, and use it to simulate lighting in a building. Virtual reality (VR) technology transports us to real or synthetic places that may be inaccessible, breathtaking, complex beyond our wildest imagination, or just simple and relaxing. The purpose of this project is to create and test energy and lighting designs for buildings on the UCF campus. We are looking for computer scientists (graphics) students, and psychology students.
