Creating Augmented Reality Experiences with Metaverse | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Education | Scoop.it
I've really enjoyed using Metaverse and I'm sure I'll be using it a lot more. I also feel that I've only just begun to scape the surface of what it can do, so I'm looking forward to understanding more of the interactions and creating more innovative learning experiences.

The Teslasuit could turn Black Mirror’s terrifying ‘Playtest’ into a reality

The Teslasuit could turn Black Mirror’s terrifying ‘Playtest’ into a reality | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Education | Scoop.it

Using electro-tactile haptic feedback, the Teslasuit can mimic sensations like bumping into a wall, touching an object, or the impact of a punch in AR/VR settings. We witnessed these sensations first-hand at CES 2019. From the prickly patter of raindrops to growing waves of static, we experienced how the Teslasuit can bring virtual worlds to lifu.

That’s not all the suit can do. Motion capture, climate control, and biometrics are on its list of capabilities. Features like that make Black Mirror’s Playtest episode a real-life possibility.

Bill Gates-backed Vicarious Surgical adds a virtual reality twist to robots in the operating room

Bill Gates-backed Vicarious Surgical adds a virtual reality twist to robots in the operating room | Augmented, Alternate and Virtual Realities in Education | Scoop.it
In an operating room in rural Idaho, doctors prep a patient for surgery. They make a tiny, thumb-sized incision into the patient and insert a small robot while across the country a surgeon puts on a virtual reality headset, grabs their controllers and prepares to operate.

While this scene may seem like science fiction now, a Charlestown, Mass.-based startup called Vicarious Surgical is developing the technology to make that vision a reality.

The VR and AR: Stepping Into the New Frontier of Learning series is co-authored by us, Maya Georgieva and Emory Craig, the co-founders of Digital Bodies – Immersive Learning. Three years ago, we founded DigitalBodies.net as a resource site for immersive technologies. Last year, we became a consulting group and have worked with research universities, liberal arts and community colleges, and not-for-profit organizations.
