Applied uses of Mixed Reality - Hands on experience for the AUSTRADE - Film, Fly, Experience Australia Competition Winners

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


The session with Dr. James Birt, an expert at 3D Printing, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality was very informative. He took the team on a tour of the Architecture Department and explained how 3D Printing and Robotics play an important role in the field of Architecture.

The University has a lot of aboriginal paintings which are of great value and put up all over the campus. They have developed an App which helps a person get the entire detail about the artist, the objective and origin of these paintings. The paintings have to be scanned on to the mobile and with the help of the headset you can get the entire information. This has been developed as a part of the research by a student and guided by Dr. Birt. This app was launched on 27.07.19 on their Open Day.

The most important take away from this visit was it gave them an insight into where our country stands and the enormous path we need to cover to reach their level.

Research and innovation is a must if we need to be noticed in any arena.

Collaboration with colleagues and sharing of ideas and finding an interconnection between subjects is of utmost importance.

There is a lot to learn. Learning is never ending.
