Let’s use immersive technologies to get out of the same four walls and explore the world around us.
IMEX[cursions] aim to do just that: By leveraging 360º Video, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, each field trip will take viewers to the far corners of the globe, allowing for up-close and hands-on discovery of other cultures – their historical landmarks, cultural traditions, favorite cuisines and much more.
The IMEX Lab team aims to add IMEX[cursions] throughout the academic year, so check back for new tours of the world.
