Tested Matrix Platform | A Revolutionary Project in Romanian research. Welcome to the Future!
Concept and proposal for the project – Winning Project
You might have seen this only on CSI, and yes there is one like that in Romania, Cluj Napoca too.
Matrix, Avalon, Star Trek – Holodeck, Nautilus, Data are a few names borrowed from the movies and books of Science Fiction. These are also a couple of names for the most revolutionary romanian research project in psychology. Officially, the Matrix Platform, a platform for diagnostic, therapy and research in virtual reality was opened on 9th of February 2010.
We have a couple of details from VoxPublica since they’ve already got to see the testing of the new “toy”. [I will visit the VR cube in the next couple of weeks and I’ll bring you updates on the project, until then I will share with you VoxPublica’s impressions on the matter]
What you are about to see it’s not fiction. It’s as real as it can gets. In the city of Cluj, Romania in the yard of the “Babes-Bolyai” University for Clinic Psychology. So, welcome to the feature!
There are a couple of images from the site.
The Matrix platform is hosted by the Avalon Building (Advanced Virtual Applications Laboratories of Napocensis) that you can see up there, or the Sunk Building. The building as you can see rises from the ground and as you can see in the first render it will have a green terrace roof. It has a futuristic design with one facade out of the ground, adapted for the activities and the most modern tools that it uses. Therefor, the building, it’s premises and the platform labs are all named after characters in the field, or after cultural events that have influenced the paradigms through which humanity defines it’s place in the world. Labs such as ”Stress Control”, ”Virtual Classroom”, ”Pain Control”, ”Star Trek – Holodeck”, ”Data” and ”Neo – Cube” (Virtual Cube – The Proud and Joy of the Matrix Platform.
The facade is not yet finished, because the weather doesn’t allow it, but as soon as we have images with the final look and feel you will be able to see it.
Until then, have a glimpse at what the Future Looks like:
