Seoul Institute of the Arts

The ICT Mixed Reality Lab has been conducting an international workshop with the Seoul Institute of the Arts with the main focus of developing new immersive experiences for the inVRse immersive viewer, a low cost virtual reality platform, and training a new generation of immersive designers and developers.

With the guidance of David Krum, Sin-hwa Kang, and Thai Phan, of the Mixed Reality Lab, and SeoulArts professor, Dae Hong Kim, two teams of undergraduate students from SeoulArts began designing immersive applications for the inVRse, a tablet based VR display developed at the ICT.

Three weeks ago, the teams traveled to the United States where they have been hosted by the ICT while completing their immersive applications. Both teams showed off their work during a New Demo Showcase at the Institute last week. The first team produced an application called Travel the Grand Canyon: an immersive jet pack experience at the Grand Canyon and the second team introduced Build a Car: assembling a car in virtual reality. This has been a testament to user-friendliness of the inVRse paradigm, providing an accessible VR framework for artists to now think VR.
