Introducing Immersive Technologies for Libraries

745 views

Published on

Immersive Technologies imitate or extend our physical world via digital simulations to give us the sense of being completely absorbed into something. Spatial computing is a new form of immersive technology that combines computer vision and artificial intelligence to integrate visual content into the real-world around us. In this webinar:

• Understand Immersive Technologies and see how they will impact everything ranging from education to entertainment.

• Learn the differences between virtual, augmented, and mixed realities to introduce Spatial Computing.

• Hear about the tools, devices, and platforms creating these new experiences.

• Discuss potential issues these technologies may have when used in learning and teaching.

• See what libraries can do to make use of immersive technologies to create new user experiences.

  2. 2. Agenda: • Understand Immersive Technologies and see how they will impact everything ranging from education to entertainment. • Learn the differences between virtual, augmented, and mixed realities to introduce spatial computing. • Hear about the tools, devices, and platforms creating these new experiences. • Discuss potential issues these technologies may have when used in learning and teaching. • See what libraries can do to make use of immersive technologies to create new user experiences.

  4. 4. About: https://bit.ly/2M3MlHM Committed to supporting the production, availability, and preservation of knowledge in its many manifestations. In order to do this successfully for emerging intellectual digital assets, it is essential that library staff directly engage in the knowledge-creation life cycle to ensure the distribution of and ongoing access to knowledge for generations to come. Do immersive digital environments impact how we create meaning or interpret phenomena? If so, how? Can this impact be transformational?

  7. 7. XR is Extended Reality • The X is a variable that can stand for anything. • Right now, it includes 360°/360°virtual reality (VR), true VR, augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), spatial computing, holograms, etc. It’s the full spectrum of Immersive Technology. • With spatial computing, programming also follows rules of gravity, space etc. so we will start to see new immersive learning environments. • Devices supporting these forms of immersive applications can be referred to as XR devices. • XR technologies are being seen in many industries (e.g., art, education, real estate, medicine, engineering, entertainment, interior design, music, libraries, etc.). • Hyper Reality is a term used sometimes, too.

  9. 9. Source: http://goo.gl/51gGTb Virtual reality completely isolates one from the physical world and is surrounded by digital content while able to interact with a synthetic world. A head-mounted display (HMD) displays the image which is modified when one moves their head and/or interacts with the content via other input modalities (e.g., hand controllers, voice commands, MRTouch etc.) Essentially, VR is a computer that is trying to trick your brain into believing that you are in a completely different environment.

  43. 43. Accessibility Guidelines Spatial or Positional Sound Effects: creating sounds that mimic the location of augmented objects allow users with mobility impairments to locate objects without requiring movement. Adjustable Location of Augmented Reality Objects: allowing users to move the augmented object that they are required to interact prevents users from requiring movement such as reaching, bending, or accessing areas that are restricted to wheelchair users. Avoid Space Conflicts: allowing augmented objects to be unfixed forms increase options in the type of movement, the angle of movement and the direction of movement needed for interaction.
