The purpose of this research is to synthesize and transform real world physical environments (PE) into a CAVE automatic virtual reality system (CAVE) by using three-dimensional (3D) models of cultural and historical artifacts. 3D models are often used in many applications including visualizations and digital preservation. Virtual reality is used to improve perception and sensation and to better understand products and environments for studying human factors and behaviors. As a pilot study, we developed and prototyped a customizable 3D physical environment using historical data and archives into an interactive CAVE virtual reality (VR) system. We then conducted a study of user preferences using pretest and post-test questionnaires of the CAVE versus paper-based artifacts.
