Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Mixed Reality (MR): you hear about these technologies all the time. How will they change the way we experience movies? How will they shape the way we learn in the future? And how can they help you get rid of your traumas? Perhaps you already have experienced their immersiveness at an exhibition or game show. VR and AR are booming. But are they here to stay?

The consumer has not yet fully embraced VR and AR. Very few serious applications exist where VR or AR is accepted as a crucial step forward. It isn’t an easy technology and we don’t really know all too well what works and what does not, and what impact it has on people.

In this summer course you will immerse yourself in this exciting new world while building an experiment in VR to find out what really works.
