Today we got to experience some of the different resources that we will be using this summer. First, we got to use the C6, a room-sized virtual reality machine. We were able to take a walk on a full-sized aircraft carrier and watch F-18s take off and do fly-bys. This machine is the only one like it in the world. It has a higher resolution than any other VR machine. Next, we got to take a look at the 3D printing lab. We looked at different printed objects and talked about the skills we will be learning this summer like 3D modeling with various different software. We also looked at the oculus rift and vive, two of the virtual reality systems that we will be using and doing research with. Yesterday we got to use and test the vive in our research lab. I am very excited about this project. We will be building virtual models designed to stress people out. We will then test these models on subjects and measure their stress response. We will measure their response by collecting heart rate data and testing cortisol levels in saliva.
