Sentience Lab

The Sentience Lab is transforming data into a new, fully immersive and interactive 3D space that can be used for multi-sensory visualisation, education, modelling, animation, rapid prototyping and much more.

When you think of data, you might just think of numbers – but what if you could see and experience what they represented? AUT’s Sentience Lab is transforming data into a new, fully immersive and interactive 3D space that can be used for multi-sensory visualisation, education, modelling, animation, rapid prototyping and much more.

The lab combines modern technologies such as motion capture, virtual reality, head-mounted displays, wireless video transmission and a custom software framework that integrates all those components into one incredible solution. This means that one or more users can “walk” through, listen to, feel, experience, and interact with information taking shape.

We are looking for Master and PhD candidates for exploring new ways of immersive data visualisation. Read more here.
