HuBeX is proud to announce the creation of a subgroup focused on extended reality (XR) solutions. Specifically, HuBe:XR will provide a centralised point for all Imperial College members who want to utilise XR in their research. This will also involve workshops, coding bootcamps, shared resources, and expert reviewers to provide advice and guidance.

HuBE:XR Workshop: Using VR as a Researcher

In December 2021, Dr Alastair Shipman hosted a free online workshop focusing on developing environments in VR with a focus on experimental approaches. The workshop covered the basics of developing a VR environment and recording participant responses. If you are part of Imperial College, you can view the workshop recording here.
