Virtual Reality at IEETA - Using a Human-centered Approach

Interactive computing systems are becoming ever more complex and have literally invaded the lives of most of us, and thus using a human-centered approach to their development is not an option. Virtual Reality systems are a particularly difficult kind as they may easily jeopardize the health and security of users if not properly designed. In this talk an introduction to the topic is made focusing on issues essential to the success of these systems. Examples of recent work conducted at IEETA will be given.
