Duke researcher to speak about benefits of immersive virtual reality

May 7, 2014

Colorado State University students, faculty and staff are invited to attend a presentation by a Duke University researcher about immersive virtual reality.

Regis Kopper, director of the Duke immersive Virtual Environment (DiVE), will speak Tuesday, May 20, 3-4 p.m. in Room 230 at the Lory Student Center.

He will talk about “Understanding the Benefits of Immersive Virtual Reality: From Interaction to Visualization.” 

Virtual reality technology has been shown to improve user performance in tasks such as spatial understanding, memorization and training.

Immersive virtual environments allow users to experience 3D computer graphics applications from a first person perspective and to interact using natural techniques.

This free, campus-wide event is sponsored by Molecular, Cellular & Integrative Neurosciences  and the Office of the Vice President for Research.
