Lab tour (2)

Reality Media Project focuses on design Reality Based Futuristic Experiences by Innovative Interactive techniques. As with hardware based on physics, software based on mathematics, reality is based on human physiology. Human can perceive the world through the inputs of five sensory organs, then processors inside the brain and makes actions using muscles as output. Our research interests are in these properties of input-output functions to design more comfortable, more enjoyable grealityh based on characteristic of sensor organs and perception.
