VR event at Vejle library

On November 1st Rolf Nordahl, Lui Thomsen and Stefania Serafin from the Multisensory Experience Lab participated to a VR /AR event in the library in Vejle. The event had two talks in the morning and demoes in the afternoon.

The talks were given by our own Rolf Nordahl who introduced VR and the different activities of the lab and Jesper Mosegaard from the Alexandra Institute.

What was particularly nice is that lately many VR talks are given by people who feel like pioneers just because they backed the Oculus few years ago in Kickstarter. Jesper instead has been working with VR before it became mainstream, and has a very strong background in computer science and visualization. Very interesting to hear about his research at Alexandra Institute.

Virtual Reality in Health Care

On October 27th the Multisensory Experience Lab will be represented at the event “Virtual Reality in Health Care” hosted by SUNDidé – Selskab for medicinsk innovation. Niels Christian Nilsson will be giving a talk discussing why VR has potential in relation to health care, and Jon Ram Bruun-Pedersen will be giving a demo related to his PhD project on using VR for motivating retirement home residents to exercise.
