On Thursday 24th June THINKlab hosted a talk from Dr Diego Martinez Plasencia, Research Associate in Human-Computer Interaction, 3D Graphics at University of Bristol.
His presentation entitled ‘Non-Solid diffusers: Bringing CVE’s to reality’ explored formats for non intrusive virtual reality.
Back in 1965, Ivan Sutherland proposed his vision of the Ultimate Display . Such display would create virtual objects that were totally undistinguishable from their real counterparts (“the handcuffs displayed […] would be confining, and a bullet […] would be fatal”). This vision was the seed for research in the fields of 3D displays, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Recent market analyses foresee a bright future for these technologies, with companies like Samsung or Sony competing for a dominating position on this rising market.
