New virtual reality center opens in Rotcruz

At Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, virtual is now merging with reality. Schools, SMEs and students should benefit from the new offerings.

With a new center for augmented and virtual reality, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences wants to bring new technology closer to schools and businesses. To this end, it is opening the Immersive Realities Center (IRC) in the Department of Computer Science at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences at Rotkreuz, says a press release.

The two technologies will be used in more and more industries. However, many SMEs and schools are unsure of the added value it will bring and whether or not the investments will be worthwhile. “With the Centre, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts offers a low profile to businesses and educational institutions in the region.” One of the goals is for companies to be able to implement projects with the university. “Such projects include, among other things, virtual training environments where employees of SMEs learn new work procedures on complex devices in a secure environment,” the university wrote.

The potential is also high in the education sector. For example, the work of human organs or complex processes such as electrical circuits can be conveyed more vividly and lively than traditional learning materials, it is said. “Both technologies offer users a new form of interaction. For example, if objects can be seen from all sides through virtual reality glasses and are within reach, then this is not only a different experience, but also an enjoyable one.”

Showroom and interaction space: A wide range of augmented reality and virtual reality infrastructure as well as tools are available for visitors to learn about the technologies.
