Watching someone else use virtual reality can be dull. You can’t see what they are seeing — you just see them waving their arms around and reacting to things while you’re left to wonder what’s going on. But what if you could see what the user is seeing, and still watch them as they move through the virtual world? How might this richer way of seeing people experience the environment lead to new research questions and outcomes? What can we learn about people by seeing through their eyes and ours at the same time?
Please join us for the official opening of the Imaging Research Center’s Observational Virtual Reality Lab — enjoy a reception and brief overview of the space, and then experience it for yourself! Refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
