Content

The unit introduces students to the principles and applications of virtual and augmented interfaces, as well as how to critically review the technology and propose new solutions. The unit will begin by introducing the principles of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and relevant modern technologies. The unit will then consider case studies of recent technological advances in virtual and augmented interfaces, and students will be required to critically review the introduction of these technologies. Finally students will work in teams to propose a solution to an existing problem and present their proposed solution in the form of a mock-up or prototype using an appropriate technological platform.
