I3D is a software framework, developed at the cpvrLab, that is used for projects using virtual reality, high-performance 3D graphics visualisation and new interaction paradigms. The development started in 2010 and uses free software create a generic framework providing basic functionality such as a scene graph, physics, haptic technology, animations and the handling of different input devices. It can be easily configured to run on for example a conventional 2D or a stereoscopic workstation, a powerwall or in a CAVE. Various projects and technology demos have already been realised with I3D such as an improved version of the operating theatre simulation (HOVISSE), games using 3D audio, physics and eye tracking in student projects.
