New vIVE video created + press about VR Vancouver Community
Written by Denise Quesnel
A brand new video about vIVE, the Very Immersive Virtual Experience utilizing Oculus Rift and Motion Capture at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in collaboration with the Vancouver VR community.
VIVE combines the Oculus Rift headset with motion capture systems to create a whole body virtual experience. Being able to roam and interact with the environment creates a more realistic VR experience. Emily Carr researchers are using this system to investigate modes of interaction and networked presence in VR. The project is partially supported by the SSHRC partnership project, Moving Stories, which is focused on qualitative movement analysis.
