The Discovery Cube in Los Angeles provides an immersive learning experience for children that leverages technology unlike any other science center in the country. From an "Aquavator" that simulates a subterranean descent below the earth's surface to a virtual helicopter tour of the L.A. area, the Cube gives kids the ultimate education by putting them right in the middle of the action.

"Our mission is to engage and educate, and these exhibits are the tools that help kids learn," says Kellee Preston, vice president of operations at the Discovery Cube.

Nowhere is the center's mission more evident -- or breathtaking -- than its centerpiece exhibit: a 4D theater that combines crystal-clear three-dimensional video with other sensory stimulation, such as fragrances and fog, that complement the footage onscreen.

To achieve its revolutionary vision, the Discovery Cube needed equally cutting edge technology that allowed the different elements, both hardware and software, to meld in a way that wasn't previously possible.
