Virtual and Augmented Reality

The ACI Realities Lab is dedicated to research in what is becoming known as xR, "Extended Reality", a term which includes Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR). 

As we mediate our interactions with the world through 3D computer interfaces, we may gain many capabilities to visualize and understand, but we may also at the same time open ourselves to many modes of vulnerability with which we are not yet familiar. This lab is intended to explore both sides of the xR domain, and is equipped with a suite of xR devices and displays that can be used in this research.
