Next on the Horizon: Immersive Technologies

Immersive Technologies bring together Virtual Reality and the real world in a full environment to provide a different experience than any flat screen can provide. The barrier between real world and the digital world becomes more fluid in this environment, enabling new ways to provide training, higher productivity, greater precision, and enhanced creativity. ImTech is currently being used in moviemaking, design and engineering. Many car and aeronautics companies use it to test products and create simulations for training.

The field is moving beyond head-mounted display devices to full, three-dimensional environments. New displays include interactive floor projection display systems, multi-touch tables with finger tracking and object recognition, 3D depth sensing digital signage, web-cam based games, and other platforms. In the medical device area, new devices have been created for use in rehabilitation, turning exercises into a computerized game to encourage patients to complete exercises and keep records of their performance. It is also used for training doctors, dentists, veterinarians and other health and emergency responders. For marketing and advertising, there are three-dimensional display boxes and other devices that provide an enriched product experience.

Come join us for our next Lunch 2.0 on Wednesday, May 19 with Nick Burch, of Rooks Advertising, who will discuss his background in developing immersive technology experiences in this growing and evolving area of technology. Nick Burch is a teacher at Ringling College of Art & Design with a background in multimedia and animation. His skills include Design, 3D animation, Flash and web based gaming. He can offer an experienced perspective on emerging ?immersive? interfaces as well as the ongoing debate about the future of FLASH on the web and in the mobile development space.
