A multi-user VR framework has been developed by the Mulholland and Glowacki groups in collaboration with computer scientists and developers at Interactive Scientific and Oracle Corporation. It uses Oracle’s public cloud infrastructure to combine real-time molecular simulations with the latest VR technology. This work has recently been published in Science Advances and has been highlighted in the News on Bristol University’s main website. It has also attracted attention from Chemistry World and the New York Times. Anybody wishing to try out the tasks described in the paper can download the software at https://isci.itch.io/nsb-imd, and launch their own cloud-hosted session.
There has also been a Facebook live discussion with the developers:
