Introduction

This unit will explore the exciting field of virtual reality, mixed reality and the advanced concepts and technologies for interfacing humans to complex machines. We will discuss their potential impact on the way we think about computers and the way we interact with them. The unit will provide an introduction to advanced human computer interfaces such as Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Tangible User Interface (TUI) technologies. Interface design principles will be reviewed from human factors and technological perspectives. Hardware, software, and design aspects of virtual interfaces will be investigated. We will also learn about these virtual interfaces that have been designed and implemented in the fields of medicine, education, design and entertainment. Hands-on experience will be provided through series of tutorial sessions that aims to provide basic skills on how to use different tools to develop student's own simple interface application.
