McMaster, Virtualware unveil virtual reality room


McMaster University and Virtualware recently unveiled a virtual reality room at McMaster Innovation Park. The custom-built lab was created as part of a four-year partnership with McMaster’s engineering program. The virtual reality lab offers students, faculty, and businesses a place to explore virtual reality tools and services. McMaster Automotive Research Centre research fellow Hanna Haponenko noted that the lab offers technology that is user-friendly and accessible for beginners. “[I]t really invites the broader community to come in and make simulations that ten years ago they probably wouldn’t have been able to,” said Haponenko.
