VR/AR Mini Expo with Kent State University CAED (College of Architecture and Environmental Design)

  • CLEVR 5000 Euclid Avenue, STE 203 Cleveland, Ohio 44103 United States (map)

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.
