Welcome to Virtual, Augumented, Mixed Realities

Description: While Virtual Reality (VR) has been around since the 1960s, only recently it has been democratised thanks to the availability of low cost hardware technologies together with accessible development tools. In this course we will introduce virtual, augmented and mixed reality technologies (VR, AR, XR) with a focus on:

-multisensory perception and embodied interaction

-hardware and software technologies for VR, AR and XR: head mounted displays, augmented reality displays, 3D user interfaces and tracking

-3D sound rendering and haptic technologies

-user experience evaluation: quantitative and qualitative methods.

-Presence research

-applications in art, entertainment, rehabilitation and learning

The class is a combination of theory and practical work in the multisensory experience lab at Aalborg University Copenhagen: https://melcph.create.aau.dk/

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
