On April 4 & 5th (Thursday/Friday), the students from the “immersive environments” course (IAT 445) will be presenting their final projects in the Mezzanine on our SFU Surrey campus, from about noon — 2:30pm.
9 Teams will showcase their own immersive Virtual Reality projects that they developed in the popular game engine Unity3D and will present on immersive viewing setups that they build themselves (ranging form mobile phones with stereoscopic viewers to larger displays with viewing boxes). Be prepared for some exciting showcases!
Below are some first impressions of the showcase — thanks to all the students for their great contributions! Note that most of them had never before developed in Unity3D.

Here are some of the final project videos of the teams:
