We created an immersive, interactive map of the Milky Way galaxy. Users explore
celestial bodies such as nebulae, solar systems, planets, and the galaxy itself
through an interactive zooming user interface. Slick transitions and a dynamic
soundtrack introduce viewers to the grand scale and beauty of interstellar space.

Gypsy Space Muffins
4:00 PM

Presented by Aaron Bartholomew, Liana Zorn, Scott Hahn, and Nick Rehberg.
Our project is a music visualization game. Mind-blowing and psychedelic environment
that visualizes music through insane particle and rendering effects. You must
collect creatures that swim through this environment in order to unlock the secrets
of the universe. This system can visualize any arbitrary MP3 file, so bring any song
you want (preferably flash drive).
