New Technology Lab

Have you been inside the New Technology Lab (NT Lab) lately? There are some new devices for UAT’s population of tech savvy individuals to use on campus. Stop in to the Bindery for a key to the NT Lab and get your innovative juices flowing with new technology!

Kor-FX Gaming Vest: The Kor-FX is a haptic feedback vest that lets you feel the game you are playing or developing. As part of the Virtual Reality Station, students will be able to combine the vest with the Oculus Rift to create truly immersive experiences.

Perception Neuron: The Neuron is a 32-point wearable motion capture device set to be installed at the Virtual Reality station. Students will be able to motion capture themselves without needing a full motion capture setup and will be able to export their data to their Oculus Rift based games easily.

Oculus Rift: A Virtual Reality headset that allows you to step into your favorite game, get immersed in a movie or take a virtual tour, with the aid of special electronic equipment like a helmet, headset or gloves with sensors.

Epson Moverio Glasses: The Moverio glasses are an augmented reality display in a similar vein to Google Glass. It is powered by Android OS and will allow students at the Virtual Reality station to explore new ways to gamify the world.

Don’t hesitate to ask for help in using any of these new devices- that’s why they are here – for students to use! Maker Tech Mike Syfritt is happy to assist students with any of the new gadgets in the NT Lab.
