You've heard of virtual reality, but not like this: a $4 million 10-foot by 10-foot room that surrounds you on all six sides (four walls, ceiling and floor) with 100 million pixels, more than any virtual reality room in the world.

Iowa State University's facility, called C6, was already quite a virtual reality showplace, but when it's updated this summer with an HP computer with 96 GPUs and 24 Sony digital projectors, it will have 16 times the pixels it had before. University officials say the system will be used for research and learning, but we think they'll use it to have a little fun, too.
