My project, Building Worlds; Creating an Affordable and Efficient Virtual Reality, began in August of 2014. The objective of my project is to explore the phenomena of virtual reality through its developing technologies, its future educational opportunities, and its application as a medium of art. I spent the first semester of my research, the fall semester of 2014, gathering information on current virtual reality and immersive environment trends. This semester, the second semester of my research, I began designing a written model of a medium for virtual reality. I interviewed the nations most revered virtual reality pioneers and gathered from their discussions a set of strengths and weaknesses of current technologies. I also traveled to Japan to the Chiba Institute of Technology to see how immersive environments and augmented reality technologies were evolving around the earth. Finally, I attended a conference event hosted by the Entertainment Technologies Center at the Institute for Creative Technologies at the University of Southern California. Through meeting and networking with the attendees of this event, I further solidified my own proposed model of a virtual environment technology by learning about each individuals past successes and failures. Through my research, I not only took the name of Florida State University undergraduate research further around the world, but I also gained a complete understanding of the realm of immersive environments and have designed my own model of virtual reality technology.
