A giant video screen that takes up an entire wall, floor to ceiling, is allowing scientists to see details they've never seen before. Developed at Tufts University with help from the National Science Foundation, the Visualization Wall has a variety of applications. For example, biologists can get up-close and personal with an eight foot tall DNA strand, material scientists or architects can roam the brick and mortar of ancient buildings. The "VisWall" offers a surgeon the opportunity to teach and practice surgical procedures on avatar renditions of the human body. The high definition clarity of the VisWall rivals IMAX in its sharpness.
