Create computer-generated experiences that allow individuals to interact with a fully virtual world.
Extended reality (XR) refers to the spectrum of technologies that span the reality-virtuality continuum, including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and 360 degree capture.
XR makes possible new modes of engagement, interaction, and immersion. Research applications of XR include architectural reconstructions, immersive performance, virtual exhibits, and interactive renderings of historical events.
OARC coordinates with the UCLA XR Initiative, which it helped to found, and others across campus to support research endeavors which incorporate XR technologies.
