I am exploring and leading various AR, VR, and MR related projects as a research fellow at the University of Melbourne. Many of these projects are in development or under review now, so I cannot put much details for now. More details to follow later:)
The Augmented Studio platform uses projection mapping to turn a human body into an interactive canvas in real-time. It uses projectors and depth sensors to enable projections of an anatomy model onto a moving body for practical physiotherapy classes, allowing students to observe the dynamic changes in the anatomical configuration of the body throughout a range of movements.
This projects involves a public demonstration in collaboration with the Melbourne Science Gallery to investigate the use of On Body Projections in public settings. Body as a canvas creates an interaction loop where interaction with information causes changes in the body, which in turn changes the display of information. Our findings show that body as a canvas create connectedness between the body and information.
This has been a truely multi disciplinary team!
