To understand that Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are "media": this is the starting point of this course. Present the main theories related to the VR / AR and immersive systems. Finally combining VR and AR with the Digital Storytelling techniques and Gamification, so that students will be able to design info-mobility apps and immersive systems not only useful but also funny.
Objective of the module is to provide students with the knowledge on the fundamentals of 3D graphics and animation and practical skills to build simple applications and systems based on simulation in virtual / mixed / augmented reality and gamification. The fundamental objectives of this module involve both make students aware of the necessary interdisciplinary approach of contributions from the mobile programming, from biomechanics, from sensory perception, from robotics and video games in order to create natural user interfaces (NUI), both in providing the instruments suitable for the design of software applications based on stereoscopic 3D and Virtual Reality / Augmented.
Understand that Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are "average" is the starting point of this course. On the one hand, by the Computer Graphics & Animation techniques and the introduction of immersive systems (sensors and actuators), we are now able to simulate the real world so realistic that it fooled so very sophistic our senses; on the other, through the insertion of artificial elements in the real perceived we are able to increase our operational capabilities and intellectual. Finally combining VR and AR with the Digital Storytelling techniques and Gamification, allow the student to design mobile information systems and immersive applications not only useful but also funny.
Lectures and lab activities, with video tutorials and lab exercices. Seminars (optionals, in extra-curricular dates). The pedagogical approach used in this course will be blended between Flipped Classroom and Active Learning, with continuous assessments.
The course starts from the interaction man-machine basis, with particular regard to natural user interfaces (NUI) and touch, to address the theories and technologies of Virtual Reality (VR), the stereoscopic (3D) video at 360 ° ( Cinematic VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Part of the course is devoted to the analysis of devices, sensors, natural interfaces, and Immersive Systems. Finally, we will discuss the theories and methodologies of Gamification and Digital Storytelling.
PART ONE: Virtual Reality: from 3D Modelling to Animation/Tracking of 3D Objects
PART TWO: VR Design and Gamification
