    Title of presentation: Moving in Virtual Reality

    Abstract of presentation: In this talk I present how virtual reality can be used to change how people move. I will show techniques that allow to guide people’s hand movements in grasping virtual objects, walk in large virtual environments from small physical rooms, and experience moving multiple bodies or bodies different from their own. I will also give examples of applications for such techniques in medical education.

      What do an increasing number of university researchers and technology-driven companies have in common? An interest in using VR and AR to simulate new realities, add information to the world, create engaging experiences and do research that would be impossible or very costly in the real world. At this session, we present selected research and industry cases, where VR or AR has been in focus as a scientific method, a research objective or experimental way of improving results.
