NSI present VR research at Telstra Labs

In June, the NSI team were invited to visit Telstra Labs in Melbourne where Ben Loveridge, Institute Fellow (Virtual Reality), delivered a detailed talk on our virtual reality research and development. Plus we met a robot!

Ben's talk covered several areas of our research including health programs using virtual reality to deliver music therapyrehabilitation sessions, and assist in mental health sessions.

Examples of virtual reality use in education were also discussed, including our VR Heart application and the new Virtual Reality Learning Studio at University of Melbourne. Following the talk, questions and discussion centered around our work on decreasing latency and the prospects of 5G technology.

Thanks to Telstra for having us along, and thank you to Ben for a stellar presentation. To learn more about our virtual reality research, check out this article recently published by AARNet.
