Imagine walking through the interior of a new building design months before construction begins. Or taking a grade-school class diving for an hour on the Great Barrier Reef. Or practicing a complex surgical procedure in your home office. These are just a few of the wide-ranging, real-world applications for a new class of man-machine interfaces known as virtual and augmented reality. Using stereoscopic head-mounted displays, 3-D sound, and tactile feedback devices, users can experience a highly compelling sensation of “presence” in a computer-generated environment, or they have graphics and text overlays “augmenting” the view of their actual surroundings.
Steve Aukstakalnis’ (Awk-sta-call-niss) deep subject-matter expertise, passion for the field and easy going conversational style enables highly informative and engaging radio and television interviews. Your audience will be intrigued by discussions about the range of serious, problem-solving applications for virtual and augmented reality and the fascinating mechanics of human sight, hearing and touch.
Their takeaway is a keen insight into a rapidly emerging paradigm shift in how we interact with computers and other complex information systems.
