SESSION: VR Prototype Testing

Join the Milieux cross-cluster Immersive Reality Lab for a VR Prototype Testing of the latest interactive project by Argentinian artist and university researcher Yessica Duarte. The workshop will take place IN PERSON at the Immersive Reality Lab 10.705, on FRIDAY, November 12th, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM.

Please email Marco Luna directly at vr.milieux@concordia.ca to book a time slot!

Yessica Duarte is a Masters Student in Technology and Aesthetic of Electronics Arts at the University of Tres de Febrero, Argentina. Her research in VR explores medium impacts on perception, proprio-perception and learning, based on the theories of embodied cognition and the concept of enactive learning.. She is developing immersive environments of hyper-realism with a prototype able to recreate an interactive and immersive embodiment experience. It uses biofeedback sensors as wearable interfaces. The sensors are controlled by Arduino and send data to Unity through bluetooth. Yessica made a breathing sensor with a resistive wool elastic belt, and a pulse sensor with an oximeter. It is a receiver and emitter of infrared light that measures the amount of oxygen in the blood.
