WABI, WVII Attend VEMI Lab’s Open House

WABI (Channel 5) and WVII (Channel 7) attended the open house of the Virtual Environment and Multimodal Interaction (VEMI) Laboratory at the University of Maine. The lab is part of the Spatial Informatics Program in the School of Computing and Information Science and houses Maine’s only research facility that combines a fully immersive virtual reality installation with augmented reality technologies in an integrated research and development environment. The lab’s director Nicholas Giudice, a professor of spatial information science and engineering, and Richard Corey, the lab’s director of operations, spoke about the work being done in the lab. Giudice said the lab offers virtual reality that merges different senses such as sound, sight and touch to make the viewer feel like they’re in the virtual reality.
