VEMI Lab reschedules open house

Due to the Oct. 31 power outage, the Virtual Environment and Multimodal Interaction (VEMI) Laboratory at the University of Maine has rescheduled its Halloween-themed open house for 4:30 to 7 p.m. Nov. 7.

The lab, located in Carnegie Hall, 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.

Students, faculty, staff, friends and family are invited to explore Halloween-related virtual reality demonstrations, as well as new simulations from recent research.

Light refreshments will be available. Costumes are not required, but are encouraged.
