Reality Deck is about half the size of a basketball court. (FRANK POSILLICO/THE STATESMAN)

University home to giant Reality Deck

Frank Posillico May 8, 2013
Stony Brook is home to a new reality: the Reality Deck, a room about half the size of a basketball court whose walls are plastered with 416 Samsung LCD monitors. When they're all turned on and showing one image, the monitors surround the viewer in a near realistic experience. Charilaos Papadopoulos is a PhD candidate who works with the Reality Deck and was one of the few who helped build it. Papadopoulos, along with Kal Petkov, is one of only two graduate students who work with Arie Kaufman, the head of the project and chair of the computer science department.
