InteractionLab is a research group/lab facility that is dedicated to different aspects of Human-Computer Interaction. We have VR/MR setups with Oculus, HTC VIVE, Hololens, Meta2, Dream_Glass HMDs, different tracking and depth sensing devices and perform research and user studies on visualization, navigation, object manipulation and gestural interaction in both Virtual and Augmented Reality settings.
