Product

The Mixed Reality Architecture prototype uses technology developed by the Mixed Reality Lab (MRL) to combine video, audio and 3D interaction to produce an environment that integrates physical and virtual spaces. The aim being to continually and simultaneously connect multiple offices and reduce the requirement for business travel. Each user, or user group, is identified as a virtual office displayed on a large LCD screen or wall projection. By moving around within the shared online space, users can establish connections with one or more other offices.
