The AlloSphere Macro scoping the Microscopic

JoAnn Kuchera-Morin has invented the AlloSphere, and in this video talk she details probably the most ambitious attempt yet at creating powerful 3d visualizations of raw scientific data, such as the structure of a crystal, or how quantum effects take place. Researchers watch from a bridge inside the 30 foot sphere, looking at data projected 360 degrees around them and listening to 3D sound.

This remarkable invention opens the envelope into the microscopic and beyond, building blocks of life and matter, so that we may at first hand experience the atomic and quantum worlds of our existence, something to date only visible via electron microscopes.
