IT Students Create Virtual Gallery for Museum Collection
Mizzou Engineering students are putting the final touches on an interactive art exhibit that will allow visitors to view paintings without ever stepping inside a museum. The exhibit is being created digitally for a virtual reality (VR) experience.
VIRTUALHACKS VR-Focused Hackathon Starts Friday
Looking for something to do this weekend? Want a chance to win Corsair Gaming mechanical keyboard and an Oculus Quest 2 headset? Then you’ll want to check out the first-ever XR hackathon sponsored by Mizzou Engineering’s Virtual Reality Organization this weekend.
CAVE to Provide Immersive Virtual Experience
Imagine studying a protein by walking through its three-dimensional structure. Or researching traffic patterns by standing alongside a virtual highway. Or safely exploring the structural integrity of a house while it’s on fire. Mizzou Engineers will soon have the capability to do these things, thanks to a CAVE opening this year in Lafferre Hall.
Students Create VR Software to Diagnose, Monitor Concussions
A group of Mizzou Engineering seniors are developing an innovative way to determine the severity of concussions. For their computer science capstone project, the students are designing software that would work with virtual reality goggles to allow users to diagnose and monitor head injuries.
Students Explore Virtual Reality Applications in VR Lab
About a dozen students from across campus got to experience various applications of virtual reality during a field trip to the VR Lab at Mizzou Engineering yesterday. Fang Wang, an assistant teaching professor in the Information Technology Program, and several of her students demonstrated the technology through projects they’ve worked on over the past couple of years.
Bringing the Classroom to Students Through Virtual Reality
Students unable to attend in-person classes in the future could still get the full classroom experience, thanks to emerging virtual environment technologies. Fang Wang—an assistant teaching professor in the Information Technology program—is testing out such concepts this semester in her virtual reality class.
Lab to Take Online Learning to New Levels
Mizzou Engineering students could see advanced online learning experiences this coming year. A new lab will equip faculty from across the College with professional-level studio equipment.
