The Blended Reality Laboratory is an applied research hub for those exploring ideas that operate at the intersection of real and virtual worlds. Located at the Center for Collaborative Arts and Media (CCAM), the Blended Reality Laboratory draws upon CCAM’s mission to connect the arts and sciences through experimental technology and collaborative research. The laboratory and its projects are underwritten through a hybrid structure of academic, industry, and applied research support including an ongoing partnership with Hewlett Packard (HP).
Using augmented reality, virtual reality, and machine learning, the lab works to help faculty and students incubate new projects while also supporting existing projects that have evolved out of the program. Alumni of the program continue to be involved and act as mentors for new members.
Access to the laboratory is for authorized students and faculty actively working on a collaborative Blended Reality project. Instructions for how to participate and get involved will be shared here as soon as the details are finalized.
Participants of all backgrounds, orientations, and ethnicities are welcome. Preference will be given to those projects that are collaborative and interdisciplinary in nature.
