Embodied Natural User Interfaces in VR

Do you have millions of dollars to spend on a fully immersive virtual experience? If you’re not Disney, then chances are you are looking for an affordable way to experience all that virtual reality has to offer from the comfort of your home. At the iSpace Lab at Simon Fraser University, we are researching different low-cost ways to “trick” your senses into believing you are actually moving through the virtual world without having to rely on expensive, cumbersome systems like you see in arcades and theme parks.

Check out our latest presentation and poster from IEEEVR 2017:
