LITE was conceived and built through an incredible vision that few people readily understand. When Lafayette's progressive leaders conceptualized LITE as a magnet for attracting big businesses, they never imagined that LITE would become the technology hub of silicon bayou. Through the years, LITE has continued to innovate, collaborate and use its inherent expertise to leverage existing technology and create solutions for local, national and international businesses such as Our Lady of Lourdes hospital, Frank's International, Kentucky State University and Louisiana Department of Transportation. This time we wanted to get the community involved in our efforts to use new technologies to create innovative products by opening our parking lot to Ragin Cajun fans this season. So, what are these innovative technologies and how are we using them?

Lafayette is living up to its moniker, the hub city. Not only are we the happiest people in the country, but we have the best food and we are one of the fastest growing mid-size cities too. While all roads lead to Lafayette, right in the center of Lafayette, Silicon Bayou if you will, is a structure so unique that the locals have nick-named it: the Glass Egg. If you have ever driven near cajundome boulevard at night and seen the towering egg glowing, then you understand why it has become such a recognizable fixture in the community. But the question still remains: What is the secret in the glass egg?

Can you build an underwater robot? Imagine you didnít know anything about robotics, engineering or mathematics and someone explained it to you. Maybe you could repeat how to do it, minus some important details, like how to attach the floats to the frame or adding the motor mounts and netting or remembering how important it is to attach the propellers in the correct direction.

The future of technology is poised to shift from 3-D movies to immersive games, ushering in a movement of personalized learning. Immersive gaming is technology that blurs the lines between the physical and digital world. Learning through gaming has the potential to engage, influence, and above all educate employees with benefits that surpass cost savings. It will be critical that businesses integrate immersive technology into their training processes.

Last month we introduced you to our IVLE project, which combines immersive learning and video-games to give businesses a more interactive way to train their employees. This same technology can also be used to redefine the way we interact with the environment. Specifically, we can use this technology not only to enhance job training, classroom learning, and business efficiency, but we can literally bring the ocean into our local museums and offices.

Imagine a world where textbooks and PowerPoint's are obsolete and learning no longer consists of endless pages of boring text and static images. Imagine instead a handheld mobile device, which contains interactive videos, moving images and engaging content; think video games played SIMS style, but specifically tailored to train, educate, and visualize complex or dangerous situations.

It's hard to imagine a world without video games at this point. They're in our homes and in our pockets. Now, they're even making their way into the daily grind.

With the increasing adaptation of gaming technology in today's society, everyone has been getting involved with games from one degree to another. Just the other day I overheard my grandmother talking about how much she plays online Internet scrabble!

I know that most people who are interested in 3D art, either as a hobby or future profession, often hit a wall before they even start simply because they do not know what software they need or how to acquire it.

Since I get asked this a lot, I figured I would give you my insight on how to get into the game industry. This is only my perspective so take it for what its worth.
