BIS chair initiates Virtual Reality Lab with support of Schneider Foundation and Qbit

In cooperation with Qbit Technologies Inc., a Virtual Reality (VR) lab has been implemented at BIS chair . VR hardware and software allow creating an immersive digital environment that enables users to perceive being present in a non-physical world. The greater the suspension of disbelief of the artificial environment, the greater is the degree of presence experienced by the user. With more affordable end-user VR IT available in the market, establishing a VR lab allows for better understanding the benefits of using this specific technology in teaching and research. The setup of the virtual environment is provided by Qbit Technologies Inc. Further support is provided by the Schneider Foundation at WHU.
