Live from the eVRyLab
Preparations for the live broadcast from our university's eVRyLab began early in the morning at 5 am.
Our IMC researcher and project leader Michael Reiner was interviewed by reporter Pia Seiser about the possibilities of virtual reality. He explained the use and application areas of Virtual Reality to the audience in a simple and understandable way and went into more detail about different areas of application - from virtual museums, to training in dangerous situations, to various possibilities in the health sector.
He was assisted by his team Matej Hopp, Sandra Pfiel, René Mario Schuster and Florian Tiefenbacher.
Moving in the virtual space
Alongside the interview, a staff member of the eVRyLab presented the technologies mentioned. The focus of the demonstration was a VR museum application that was designed and programmed by the eVRyLab team as part of a research project.
The project leader was particularly proud of the innovative Omnideck, which enables movement in virtual space. How this works also became clear during the live broadcast.
Innovation in research and education
IMC Krems’ eVRyLab has created a highlight in virtual-reality movement technology, underlining its position as a digitalisation trailblazer in Lower Austria.
The eVRyLab is primarily used for the Scan2VR project and other research projects, but also for student projects and for school classes. Children and young adults are thus introduced to the topic of virtual reality. It is part of the Institute of Digitalisation and Informatics. The institute deals with the latest digital trends and forward-looking topics.
