    Billed as one of the "hottest sessions" of NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference, the year's largest event for graphics processing unit developers, a presentation by VR Lab Manager Tom Sgouros (brace yourself for a pun) was a uniquely behind-the-scenes look at a major technological accomplishment. "Only Where It Yurts" walked attendees through the 20 computers, 69 video projectors, 145 mirrors, and 1.3 miles of video cable in Brown's latest 3D virtual reality environment, the Yurt, presenting design considerations and challenges, construction methods, lessons learned, and preliminary display imagery.
