Like many academics, we have now been away from our main laboratories for three months now. However, our work has taken on new dimensions that respond the crisis. There have also been research community responses to the situation, from early experiments in running conferences completely online (see post about IEEE VR 2020) to discussions about […]

UCL was involved in several papers and talks at IEEE VR2020. Anthony was one of the Journal Programme Chairs and one of the coordinators of the Virtual Conferencing Workshop (VR in VR). That workshop became very important as the whole conference moved online. Other contributions: Anthony talked on a panel at the VR in VR […]
We have lots of content at IEEE Virtual Reality 2017: Drew is presenting: Cinematic Virtual Reality: Evaluating the Effect of Display Type on the Viewing Experience for Panoramic Video, Andrew MacQuarrie and Anthony Steed The following papers have UCL co-authors Efficient Hybrid Image Warping for High Frame-Rate Stereoscopic Rendering, Andre Schollmeyer, Simon Schneegans, Stephan Beck, […]
The VR lab was featured on Brit Lab. They featured the CAVE, one of our summer student projects on low-latency telepresence and a robotic manipulator.

One of our summer interns, James Edge, has produced a version of Bossa Studio’s Surgeon Simulator that has force feedback. We used a pair of Haption Virtuose 6D force feedback arms, and combined these with the existing Alien Autopsy level for the HTC Vive. You get force feedback from the tools as you attempt your […]
We had a busy demo session at this month’s VR Club. First of all, we had a HoloLens to show, courtesy of Dean Mohamedally and his mum! Second, and more importantly, or at least more fun, we were showing off for the first time our port of Surgeon Simulator on the CAVE, see this blog […]
Anthony was recently on the Voices of VR Podcast, in an episode #416: Research on VR Presence & Plausibility with Anthony Steed. Previous episodes of the same podcast featuring members of the lab have included: #183: Mel Slater on VR Presence, Virtual Body Ownership, & the Time Travel Illusion and #128: Anthony Steed on VR Research at […]
We have recently demonstrated a new Panoramic Video player on our CAVE system. Built as a fork of Omar Mohamed Ali’s (@omnigamedev) omiplayer (original course currently closed, our fork on Bitbucket here). Works surprisingly well and is lots of fun. Certainly can see more action in the video because of the wider field of view, but […]
