The Immersive VR Lab is a facility for research spanning a broad range of academic disciplines. Current and recent collaborations include projects with partners in engineering, architecture, drama, social psychology and neuroscience.

Under the overarching research goal of understanding how to make virtual reality effective, the CAVE performs experiments with participants using a range of media from desktop setups to immersive VR, incorporating various modes of interaction.

What makes a difference to our sense of presence in a virtual environment, and our sense of co-presence with other people? By joining us on the night, you will have the chance to experience what ‘being’ in a virtual environment means!

In the CAVE we will demonstrate some past and present projects. Concurrently in the foyer there will be a demonstration of our large scale haptic (touch) interfaces, robotic telepresence and head-mounted displays.
