Low Cost Visualization and Immersion Technology Evaluation

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Visualization and Virtual Prototyping

Research team: Eliot Winer

Researchers who intend to assemble a virtual reality (VR) system have traditionally expected a very high price tag. Wearable computers, head mounted displays (HMDs), motion tracking cameras, and input devices are often very specialized and expensive. This project focuses on new low-cost visualization and interaction technologies that address Boeing's interest in desktop VR. The aim is to evaluate the devices for potential application during design and assembly of products.
