Virtual Reality Research

Currently I'm working on creating a research tool for exploring how different interactions with a game-narrative can facilitate empathy-driven decision making in virtual reality. While this research is still in an early-phase, the game designed to facilitate this research is being worked on heavily. Interested to see what it looks like? Click the button below to watch the first bit footage from the game, showcasing some basic world-interaction in VR. Something that turned out extremely important as the inability to interact with your surroundings proved to be vastly immersion-breaking. Even more so than in traditional games.

Construction Time

Construction Time is an augmented reality game that aims to keep students motivated during their education in mathematics. As mathematics can be a frustrating topic it is important to stay motivated. An important thing to keep in mind is how certain elements of mathematics can be harder to comprehend for one student than for another. Not only does this slow down the progression of the student relative to his or her peers, but it also creates frustration. This unpleasant feeling can make it difficult for students to focus on their work and continue improving. In order to aid students that experience such a feeling of frustration Construction Time offers a fun distraction in the form of a short Augmented Reality game.

TelMee

"TelMee gives every person a voice"

TelMee is a service that creates an engaged and active community. It helps municipalities in moving towards a participation society.

Currently it requires a lot of effort from the inhabitants to participate actively in a municipality. With TelMee we aim at giving a voice to every inhabitant, also the ones who are currently heard too infrequently.

The services takes into account every involved party: the municipality, the initiators and the other inhabitants:

  • It facilitates municipalities in monitoring the support for specific initiatives, by using the system as a tool to collect data or provoke discussion.
  • It enables initiators to reach more fellow inhabitants.
  • it gives inhabitants the opportunity to express their opinions in an accessible way.

TelMee is a TU/e M1.1 project created Deborah Pelders, Kaz Voeten and Marit Her.
