Birds of a feather: VirtualHacks 2023 inspires flock of students to explore extended reality
Have you ever wanted to fly like a bird, complete tasks as a goose, or step inside the 2013 viral game, “Flappy Bird?” Extended reality (XR) makes it possible, as more than two dozen students demonstrated at a recent XR hackathon.
‘Explainable AI’ can efficiently detect augmented/virtual reality cybersickness
Exposure to an augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) environment can cause people to experience cybersickness — a special type of motion sickness with symptoms ranging from dizziness to nausea — and existing research to mitigate the severity of the symptoms often relies upon a one-size-fits-all approach. However, Khaza Anuarul Hoque, an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and a team of researchers are working to develop a personalized approach to identifying cybersickness by focusing on the root causes, which can be different for every person.
Freshmen, sophomores among engineers presenting at Show Me Research Week
Freshmen and sophomores will be among the more than 55 Mizzou Engineering undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows participating in Show Me Research Week.
Mizzou Engineering students, alumnus compete at MIT Reality Hack
Four Mizzou Engineers participated in MIT’s Reality Hack last month, an international hackathon focused on extended reality (XR, an umbrella term for virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality), developing novel ways to implement emerging technologies.
Mizzou Engineering made virtual museum now available in Oculus Rift Store
Mizzou Engineering students and faculty created a virtual museum now available on the Oculus Rift Store.
New lab brings photogrammetry, motion capture system to Mizzou Engineering
A new lab at Mizzou Engineering will give students access to the latest technology allowing them to turn images of large objects into 3D digital assets. It’s called the Collaborative Research Environment for Extended Reality, or…
Mizzou Engineering team using explainable machine learning to combat cybersickness
Nausea, headaches, dizziness. Just as motion sickness can ruin an otherwise pleasant road trip, cybersickness can make virtual reality unbearable for some users. That’s a problem as even the federal government has prioritized spending to incorporate immersive technology in educational, medical and commercial settings. In hopes of mitigating the effects of cybersickness, a Mizzou Engineering…
