Virtual 3D “fish tank” box has screens all around

The brilliantly simple (if perhaps poorly named) pCubee from The University of British Columbia’s Human Communications Technology Lab is exactly what it appears to be–a box with flat screens on 5 sides. Both the user’s position and the orientation of the box are tracked to provide a real-time, perspective-corrected illusion of 3D forms “inside” the box. I want one with an impossible pet inside, like a baby Totoro or something. [via Geekologie]
