Please join the Qualcomm Institute from noon to 2 p.m. this Saturday, Jan. 27 for QI Friends & Family Day, a rare opportunity to tour Atkinson Hall's futuristic visualization and laboratory spaces at no charge, as well as a chance to chat with researchers at the top of their field. 

Sign up to tour the immersive 3D virtual reality space known as the SunCAVE (pre-registration required at bit.ly/QISUNCAVE), see the surface of Mars and Yosemite Valley as you've never seen them before on our "room-sized" 64-megapixel Vroom, hear sound manipulated for virtual and augmented reality in our Audio Spatialization Lab, and much more! Children and youth welcome!

The event begins at noon, and guided tours begin promptly at 12:30 with a short film in the Calit2 Theater. Tours then take place every 15 minutes from 12:45 to 2 p.m.
