Meet the Realities Team

The Realities theme is a collaboration between the Universities of Otago and Canterbury respectively led by Prof Holger Regenbrecht and Prof Rob Lindeman. A key technology being developed within this work-package of the project is the use of voxel-based avatars to enrich interactive, immersive VRs experiences.

For an example of what this can look like see the recorded video session by Noel Park, one of the team’s PhD students, interacting with the voxel-captured rendition of Hēmi Whaanga, the PI of the project, giving an explanation of the stars.
