We have developed  4-Dimensional  Digital  Universe  (4D2U) theater. In  the theater, the observational    data and the  theoretical  models of astronomical  objects  are visualized  stereoscopically.  The astronomical  objects range from  the solar system to  the “large-scale  structure” of  the universe. We have also produced the four-dimensional  movies  of various  astronomical processes based on the results  of computer simulations.  In  addition to these, we have distributed  the products of this project through the Internet.  As the next step of the project, we are now constructing 4D2U dome theater.
