IMMERSED IN: MIT.nano—An exploration of the Immersion Lab's capabilities
Wednesday, March 31, 2021
11 a.m. – 12 p.m. EDT
This session provided an overview of the tools and capabilities of the MIT.nano Immersion Lab. Attendees saw examples of how the space and tools of the Immersion Lab are connecting scientists and artists through creative interdisciplinary projects, and learned about opportunities to create with the Immersion Lab.
This first IMMERSED consisted of a series of presentations followed by Q&A:
Immersion Lab tools and opportunities
Brian Anthony, Associate Director, MIT.nano
Biomechanics IAP course highlighting motion capture and EMG recordings
Praneeth Namburi, Postdoctoral Associate, Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE)
360 photography course highlighting 360 cameras
Samantha Farrell, Senior Administrative Assistant, MIT.nano
Physiological measurements for insights into dancing
Ben Moss, MIT MS '08, PhD '14, Electrical Engineer & Ballroom Dancer
IMMERSED is a monthly seminar in which we explore the possibilities enabled by immersive technology and interactive experiences. Technologies such as motion capture, virtual and augmented reality, photogrammetry, and related computational advances bestow the power to gather, process, and interact with data from multiple modalities, providing unique insights and fostering interdisciplinary collaborations.
IMMERSED examines how immersive technology is shaping innovations across the sciences and the arts through a mix of lectures, demonstrations, and tutorials. IMMERSED is sponsored by the MIT.nano Immersion Lab, which provides space, tools, and a platform to connect scientists, engineers, artists, performers, and others through creative projects that bridge multiple disciplines.
