The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
ETC EXPLORES AUGMENTING REALITY
“The mixAR team studied how users interact with a virtual agent — in this case a spherical robot — to examine how an interactive agent can be useful, when it becomes a nuisance and how the robot could emotionally connect with the user.
“Right now the field is truly in its infancy,” said Hagen, the producer for the mixAR team. “Imagine a paramedic arriving at an accident with an augmented reality device that can provide all the vitals of an unconscious individual, saving them the moments they may need to prevent that person’s death. Dramatic perhaps, but one of the best examples of how we could use augmented reality to improve our society right now.”
The Music Everywhere team used the HoloLens to help teach or learn an instrument. They worked with a piano to understand how AR can help engage users, demonstrate concepts and guide users through interactive exercises.”
