The Holojam research platform is the project that Media Research Lab has been working on over a year.
Our specific research focus is on studying how people in the future might share a physical space together on a day to day basis,
if they have the power-ups that come from being able to see literally any visual representation of each other and of the world around them that they wish -- whether or not that visual representation is physically possible.
Holojam supports investigations into how people in the future might share a physical space together, if they are able to see any visual representation of each other and of the world around them that they wish. Privileging physical mobility and low latency over literal realism, Holojam shows each freely roaming participant the world around them rebuilt entirely out of computer graphics. Repurposing currently available hardware, shared real-time user experiences are supported using only the graphics available on lightweight SmartPhone based HMDs, situated in a motion capture lab.
I worked and still working as a Unity Developer in the research team. My work involves backend development, interaction design, interaction implementation.
