 In recent years, VR technology has gained increasing attention and is expected to be utilized in various fields such as broadcasting, advertising, education, manufacturing, medical and welfare in the future. With good ideas, even individuals are able to develop virtual products with low overhead cost and countryside residence being capable of competing in the global market as long as they are connected to the internet. The Human-Centered Computing Course of Akita University  aims to develop original systems by using state of the art information technology to understand more about human beings.

  This year, we welcomed eleven third year students to our laboratory. During the welcoming party, everyone was entertained by their performances and interesting personalities.
