New Equipment Funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation

This afternoon Honourable Ed Holder, Minister of State (Science and Technology), made the John R. Evans Leaders Fund national announcement, which included $55,000 in equipment funding for the vialab.  New equipment to be procured includes state of the art eye tracking and motion capture systems, and two high resolution multi-touch and pen displays.  These new pieces of equipment will help us to conduct state of the art research into new visualization and interaction techniques to provide efficient and pleasurable ways to explore, analyze, and make decisions about data in domains as diverse as digital humanities, healthcare, and business analytics.
