The Future Immersive Virtual Environments (FIVE) Lab performs research on state-of-the-art virtual reality (VR) systems and 3D user interfaces (3DUIs). We investigate the effects of system fidelity through user studies focused on performance, experience, learning, and training. Our goal is to better understand today’s technologies to push the boundaries of tomorrow’s immersive virtual environments.
