The Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University is a unique research institution "that combines technology and fine arts to create new processes, tools, and vision for storytelling and entertainment." Most visitors to the center's homepage will be mainly interested in the diverse array of current and past projects investigated by students and faculty. The Biohazard project is developing a program used to train firefighters for a chemical terrorist attack in a shopping mall; the program simulates the mall environment and the trainees are required to virtually guide civilians outside for decontamination. Despite the lack of research papers on the site, the projects are all explained in detail and several video demonstrations are provided.
