For most of us, the term virtual reality (VR) sparks excitement. While the use of VR for entertainment has surely found its place in our world, the technology has much larger potential: for training, therapy and research. Many scientists at the University of Twente are exploring these serious applications. In their hands, VR becomes a tool to overcome addiction, to conduct experimental research in criminology and to treat psychiatric patients.
Virtual and augmented reality for industrial applications. That is the specialty of the Industrial Reality Hub. This consortium of Twente-based companies and institutes, including the UT, will have its official launch on the 14th of March in the Gallery.
