IMMERSE: Center for Immersive Computing

Integrating the virtual with the physical

IMMERSE brings together expertise in immersive technologies, applications, and human factors to perform research, educate a new workforce, and build infrastructure that will enable a new era of immersive computing

Immersive computing promises the seamless integration of the virtual with the physical. It includes augmented, virtual, and mixed reality (AR, VR, and MR), collectively extended reality (XR), digital twins, the metaverse, spatial computing, and earable computing.

Immersive computing is poised to change how we design, program, and interact with computing. It has the potential to transform most human activities,  including education, healthcare, science, arts, crisis response, industrial design, manufacturing, maintenance, agriculture, retail, social interactions, entertainment, and more.

Yet, many challenges remain before we can achieve the full promise of comfortable, mobile, responsive systems that offer rich, collaborative immersive experiences. Learn how IMMERSE is addressing these challenges.
