The RCC has hosted a visualization hackathon every year for the last three years. The events have been held at UChicago's Crerar Library's Zar room.

In 2018 more than 40 people who are interested in data visualization, virtual reality systems, interactive tables, and haptic devices attended this event!

Over the last few years, we have developed applications for HTC Vive headset, Google cardboards, Google Daydream View, Multi-touch Virtual Reality Workbench (workbench that combines a multi-touch table with a head-tracked stereoscopic display wall), Geomagic Touch Haptic Device, and Kinect for Windows.

Some of the best projects are often presented during our Mind Bytes Symposium, in the Technical Demos sessions.
