Our Projects

CRCDM has assembled a transdisciplinary team of media researchers and creative designers with an extensive background in industry and education, to forge the applications and content required to introduce and support creative digital media initiatives at Sunway University and across the entire Sunway Group.

NEW PROJECT

Virtual & Augmented Reality Research Network – VARRN

We take as our international collaborative network focus, how virtual systems, information networks and digital media intersect with the experiences of human condition across the different local social and cultural settings within which our research is located. It builds onto the concepts of sustainability, the cultural imaginary, the tangible, intangible, empowering knowledge mobilization of virtuality applications across the ASEAN region, CRCDM and the Network partners. VARRN seeks to motivate a new generation of students and researchers in the domain of virtual-augmented reality – merging the arts, sciences, humanities, media, and technology.

VARRN is powered by a Sunway internal research grant: STR-IRNGS-SOA-CRCDM-01-2021

A Full Immersive Recycling VR Challenge

What Happened Here? An Immersive Virtual Story Narrated by Users

A large realistic Unity-Scene was developed to conduct an immersive storytelling and a user study. The scene presents elements that at the first glance appear to be randomly positioned to populate the environment. For many users, this experiment was unprecedented in two ways i.e. for the first time exploring a virtual world fully immersive, and more importantly, being encountered with a series of uncanny events. The decision of ‘What Happened Here?’ was left to them. The experiment was recorded, documented, and analysed.Read more >>
