Using Virtual Reality To Explore Camouflage and Colouration
The lab has some new equipment: An HTC Vive VR system and some lovely new software developed by two students of the Abertay’s AMG faculty. The software, currently called ScamperVR (Search ColourAtion Movement PattERn Virtual Reality), allows us to place 3D objects in a scene and have participants explore the scene and select items. The software records the location of objects and participants throughout experimental trials, enabling a sophisticated analysis of motion and choices in the VR environment. Special thanks to the programmers Gary McCartan and Stewart McCready!
