Kent State University's College of Architecture and Environmental Design professor David Jurca and his graduate students joined the Cleveland Chapter of the VR/AR Association along with RazorEdgeCLEVR for a Virtual & Augmented Reality mini expo at our Midtown Cleveland Offices at the Agora.  Professor Jurca, Reynaldo Zabala and Tom Madrilejos led students through experiences with AR/VR headsets and discussions focused on how the emerging technology can enhance the architecture and environmental design process.

The graduate students were challenged to envision how full body immersion, 6 DOF tracking and eye/retinal tracking could be deployed within the design process to compress feedback loops and allow for a more accurate modeling against a far wider range of environmental parameters.

The vast majority of the students had not experienced Virtual or Augmented Reality prior to the event and it was a fantastic opportunity to share an afternoon with many of the young pioneers who will hopefully stay in Cleveland after graduation and help us to build the #VRBELT.
