Mixed reality is the merging of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. Built on top of immersive technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality, mixed reality opens up a whole new area of research in designing data visualisation and collaboration systems. IoT allows different physical devices to communicate via internet. This talk explores some interesting aspects drawn from designing and developing a mixed reality collaborative software prototype that covers various innovative technologies such as 3d printing, augmented reality, and tangible controls.
Florence works as a scientific data visualisation specialist at Scientific Computing, CSIRO. She completed her PhD from University of Sydney in 2014 with a focus on high dimensional data visualisation and understanding. Her work interests are data visualisation, visual analytics, and more recently, the overlapping areas between mixed reality and visualisation.
