Ken Perlin on the Future of Immersive 3D

  • Feb 4, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Ken Perlin, a professor in the Department of Computer Science at New York University, directs the NYU Games For Learning Institute, and is a participating faculty member in the NYU Media and Games Network (MAGNET). He was also founding director of the Media Research Laboratory and director of the NYU Center for Advanced Technology.

This is an exciting event - Dr Perlin will be speaking to our members about recent research and the future of immersion, collaboration and 3D:

"At the NYU Media Research Laboratory we are approaching 3D immersive collaboration in a number of different ways. One approach is to give each participant a personalize experience, using newly available technologies like the Oculus Rift together with binaural audio, various forms of haptic feedback, and a host of low latency sensing devices to track both kinematics and dynamics of the participant.

Another approach is to build a CAVE-like environment with 360 degree panoramic projection and wavefield synthesized audio. Newly available commodity hardware makes it possible to do this in a relatively low cost, modular and portable way. We can combine these different modalities, so that participants in very different types of immersive environment can interact with each other.

These various support environments are designed to be easily replicated and adopted by open source research community. In such environments people can interact with each other in new and exciting ways, including encounters with virtual creatures, collaborative manipulation of mixed reality objects, and face to face conversation that allows each conversant to draw pictures in the air.

We're doing all of this as a way to understand what the future will hold as technologies advance far beyond today's levels. I will end the talk with some predictions about where all this may be going in the next ten, twenty or fifty years."

    Awesome talk, only now I want to quit my job and start playing around :) Unfortunately, I had to leave early was the talk recorded? I missed the last part the "new stuff". And Mr Whoopee is great

    Hey guys, looking forward...
    We're working on the first holographic watch, looking for some experts to join us...
