The ProjectMuVR is a prototype for an embodied virtual reality system for mobile devices that is built using off-the-shelf parts. It was created during my internship at the Mixed Reality Lab at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies. It is a limber and compact system inspired by the research of Kyle Johnson and Project Holodeck. The hardware consists of:
All devices (for all users) communicate with multiple servers, and our software uses a step-detection algorithm to move the user in the virtual world.
My RoleI was responsible for designing, producing, and developing the system with a hardware specialist and an artist. High level tasks:
A poster based on our research has been accepted for publication at IEEE VR 2014.
