  • "Being There" with socially enabled Virtual and Augmented Reality Recorded: Jun 30 2021 60 mins
    Rebecca Kemper, COSI. Rick Karl, Kent State. Joe Chambers, VRARA Columbus
    Presentation by Center of Science and Industry (COSI) and The May 4th augmented reality experience, which is designed to engage and immerse users as they journey through the events of May 4th, 1970 and reflect on its meaning for today. The experience invites users to view multiple perspectives of the Kent State shootings through the lens of augmented reality using historical imagery, audio, and related experiences that highlight past and current humanitarian struggles.

    Kent State researchers will describe two eXtended Reality (XR) projects they deployed within the last few years. The first, an augmented reality project that was later turned to VR because of COVID-19, gives users opportunities to explore the context and history surrounding the May 4th, 1970 shootings at Kent State University. The second, a VR 360 project designed for headset or standard screen viewing, gives future teachers opportunities to “virtual visit” and observe classrooms to learn about professional practice. Moderated by Rebecca Kemper, COSI: Center of Science and Industry
