Octave: A world-class, fully configurable, immersive holographic experience which engages sight, sound, and touch that can bring together people and objects from around the world in one single virtual reality.

What is Octave?

Octave is one of the world’s most advanced multi-modal research systems. To be multi-modal is to engage multiple human senses at the same time. The eight-sided projection facility recreates 3D vision around and beneath the user, and recreates sound and touch in this holographic environment. The user becomes immersed in a virtual reality, with the ability to move and manipulate the objects they see using a variety of interaction devices including their own bodies.
